If you need readline with OpenSSL you can use the "standard" socat and something like following recipe:

rlwrap -- socat -,capath=/etc/ssl/certs

Note for those who do not know:

The licences of OpenSSL and GNU-readline are incompatible. So socat can only be distributed either with OpenSSL compiled in or GNU-readline compiled in, but not both. As socat is mainly a networking tool distributions usually add OpenSSL and leave GNU-readline out.
