Package: libedit
Severity: important

Recent versions (last 4-5 years) of libedit contain Unicode UTF8
support.  However, from what I can tell, this is not yet enabled in
the most recent builds. So, for example:



checking if you want wide-character code... no

It would be great if UTF8 was turned on; I really need this for my
European users!  Anyway, its normally enabled by saying:

./configure  --enable-widec

which #defined WIDECHAR  in config.h and turned the above ... no into a ... yes
