Axel Kielhorn has been away from his computer for a while :( . He
left before vim 5.6 was released. At some point, Dany St. Amant posted
a binary for vim-mac 5.6 but never announced it. I noticed it and
pointed it out to Bram. He was having trouble uploading to the new
ftp.vim.org; when that got resolved, he posted the binaries and
When I got my copy, it was packaged with a rather non-standard
vimrc file. Has this survived to the version on ftp.vim.org?

I think so. I saw Bram's posting and downloaded it, then realized that
it was Dany's January build. But the non-standard vimrc file is part of
the MacOS distribution. All the command-key map bindings were commented
out; I uncommented most of them without problems, but there are two that
I've left out because they don't work right with cut-and-paste commands.
Now if only the cursor could blink in MacOS...
