I have added the following change to

        # readline on MinGW has problems with backslashes in psql and other bugs.
        # This is particularly a problem with non-US code pages.
        # Therefore disable its use until we understand the cause. 2004-07-20
        case $host_os in mingw*)
          if test "$with_readline" = yes; then
            AC_MSG_WARN([*** Readline does not work on MinGW --- disabling])

and will issue this warning during configure run:

        configure: WARNING: *** Readline does not work on MinGW --- disabling

You can suppress this warning by running configure using
--without-readline.  If we find a fix for this we can remove this code.
