HISTORY_STATE is declared in external/readline/readline-5.2/history.h.
Make sure you don't have another history.h file in the way that gets picked up 
first. To find out which file is picked up added -E to the compile flags for 
readline.c (best copy/paste the gcc invocation that flies by and add -E before 
re-running it manually) to see the full paths of header files being included.
