It should be noted here that the WITH_VIM_OPTIONS and WITH_OPTIONS vars
still will not have an effect on vim. I currently have WITH_OPTIONS
defined globally and it does not effect the outcome of vim as python is
still not enabled.

Valid option at this time to get python working inside vim is to set
WITH_PYTON=yes in your make.conf as someone stated earlier.
