nrn /w iv on ubuntu (breezy), fixing a libreadline problem.

On ubuntu the readline library seems to be named in a way that nrn/.configure doesn't know about. (ubuntu is appending a version number to the .so files). So, if your make is failing and yelling about readline not compiling, it's probably because ./configure didn't actually find the library.

if you make a symlink to the library leaving off the version number, the ./configure should find the library and the compilation should be work.

> sudo ln -s /lib/ /lib/
> cd nrn
> ./configure --with-readline=/lib && make

Happy modeling.
