      Thanks for the reply (and the package). I would have tested it
      myself, but my Jaguar disks are still in the box. (I backed up the
      system yesterday, so I will try it Real Soon Now.) Others are compiling
      vim (for Terminal.app and the Carbon version) with gcc3. I think there
      are some problems, not very serious, with configure. A couple of the
      patches are aimed at fixing these; you may still have to add -lncurses
      or something to the compile options. Only a few of the patches are
      mac-specific; most are aimed at fixing problems with the many new
      features added to vim 6.0.
