That got it to install. I changed it from editor to readline.
Although it installed, it still didn't work without lots of
fiddling. The README files told about some of it, but still, I
had to change some permissions in ways other than what was
documented. I did enough fiddling that I am not sure what I
did and what was really necessary.
I don't know why to took so much fiddling. Maybe there is too
much cruft on the machine. Maybe I missed something. Maybe I
messed up something a while back, and fiddled to work around
