How to move vi to /bin

I want to move vi to /bin so that I have an editor available in
single-user mode. This sounds simple (and should be if all you have is
a single partition), but there are problems. For starters, terminfo
can't locate its database in single-user mode.

Could anyone please tell me how to go about this on a 7.x system ? I
am also curious to know why FreeBSD doesn't place vi under /bin in the
first place.

Thank you and Regards
