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.
