      I did:
      cvs checkout
      cd vim7/src
      ./configure --enable-pythoninter --with-features=huge
      make install

      with no change to the Makefiles (fresh out of cvs). The error was
      when running "make install".

      Maybe the problem is with the definition of "prefix" at the beginning
      of the install:

      srcdir=`pwd`; make -f Makefile installruntime \
      VIMEXE=$srcdir/Vim \
      prefix=/Applications/Vim.app/Contents/Resources/vim \

      I see this in the make:
      cp gui_mac.icns Vim.app/Contents/Resources/gui_mac.icns

      but it does not seem to create the Icon file at the top of the
      Vim.app dir. Here is what I got before and after I copied and pasted
      an icon to the app:

      schmitta@top src % ls Vim.app
      schmitta@top src % ls /Applications/Vim.app
      Contents Icon

      I'll keep my eyes opened.

      Thanks again.
