I got this version from ports the day it hit the tree, an upgrade from
vim6 (using the "vim" port directory). How come if it doesn't compile
on 4.X, I am running it now, compiled from the port?
A bunch of other stuff I have compiled is marked as broken too and no
major updates were posted. They just get marked as broken for 4.X or
"does not compile at all".
However I am having insane libtool problems with mod_python3 and mod_auth_pam2
which I cannot resolve. Does anyone actually check if these things really do
work or are they just being marked to close down the ports bug list as fast
