You don't have to tell python to look for libreadline5.  If you:

1) Install libreadline (with "sudo apt-get install libreadline5-dev")
2) Reinstall python

then in the installation process python will automatically find
libreadline5 and set itself up to work with it.  No messing around
with environment variables should be needed.
