Yafc download

The GNU Readline library (>=2.0) is required for tab completion and history. Well, it works without readline, but it's boring. Readline is available from ftp.gnu.org. You probably have this library installed already if you are running Linux (you also need the development headers, often available in a package named something like libreadline-dev or libreadline-devel).
