all is now well on the configuration file front! Thank you.

didn't have standard unix directory structure. If that were the case I
would have stuck it in local bin without a thought.
However I did find the :h macvim help text inside of vim and they had
a suggestion for an alias and that worked out perfectly. So I can
have a terminal open and type gvim <filename> and it works out just
fine. I think if I do vi at the command line it uses an older version
of terminal vim (6.2 or 6.3) without a lot of frills.
Thank you for the help, I appreciate it.
