xace 4.8 on Solaris 7?

I had experienced the "horrible bug" of ACEDB 4.7x running 
under Solaris 7 as described by Jody Schwartz earlier and 
downloaded the test.source.4_8a.tar.Z from ncbi.nlm.nih.gov 
and recent updates from ftp.sanger.ac.uk (all.991126.tar.Z 
equivalent?). I've tried to compile these with gcc under 
Solaris 7 using the environment for ACEDB_MACHINE set to 
SOLARIS_4_RELEASE. Apparently these versions are missing 
something because I get the following compile error:

acein.c:30: readline/readline.h: No such file or directory

Looking at w1/acein.c I see the problem seems to be

#include <readline/readline.h>

I also see the note:

/* Nov  1 15:25 1999 (srk): added readline prompt */

Are there any newer repaired versions available? Does the 
ACEDB 4.7x occur under Solaris 8 also? I guess I should have 
patched my old Solaris 2.6 system first rather than jumping 
to Solaris 7.
