Thanks Jerry, this was the solution. The readline libraries were not installed.

Do you have the readline libraries installed on the new system, and did 
it find it during the configure process?

checking readline/readline.h usability... yes
checking readline/readline.h presence... yes
checking for readline/readline.h... yes
checking for rl_callback_handler_install in -lreadline... yes

For Ubuntu you will probably need the following installed:

history libraries, run-time libraries (32-bit)

Using the arrow keys I only get something like ^[[A or ^[[B. The history function in my shell works fine and also other programs, like gnuplot, provide a history using the arrow keys. I assume that this is not a torque-specific problem, but I hope anyone can give me a hint to solve this problem.
