Vim6.0.17.sea for Mac Classic from Axel Kielhorn's site,
and I did not have any trouble. That is, Stuffit unpacked the files
automatically, I double-clicked on the icon, and vim started up without any
error messages. Here is the relevant part of my directory structure:
vim/vim60/vimPPC (the executable)
If I understand your directory structure, you have runtime/ and vimPPC under
vim/ instead of under vim/vim60 . Perhaps that is the problem.
Even if there is something wrong with tags, you should be able to read
the help files: they are all in vim/vim60/runtime/doc/ . The directory
structure affects how vim finds the runtime files. If moving things around
does not help, try
in vim, and maybe
for good measure.
