The last time I looked at libeditline, it did not look very good,
and the packaging of it was not very good either.
It is possible to divert the shared library, but I
recommend against it. I have been through this already with
"Compatible ABI" usually isn't.
Since it is a license violation in the upstream level,
I recommend asking the upstream to fix their bugs.
