Hi Tomek,

I tried this, but I get the same result.
The thing is in the make prozess it prints 
	defaulting to: don't HAVE_X11
	checking --enable-gui argument... no GUI support
	checking X11/SM/SMlib.h usability... yes
	checking X11/SM/SMlib.h presence... yes
	checking for X11/SM/SMlib.h... yes
	no GUI selected; xim has been disabled
	no GUI selected; fontset has been disabled

So I think my system is missing some library or configuration.
At first I thought that I just need to execute "make config" in
editor/vim, but it has no configurations.
I am actually little bit puzzled. 

Best regards,
