      Hello,

      I certainly haven't tested this, but I since your problem relates to vim
      not finding things -- I suspect that you need to change the
      runtimepath. In other words, why not include ~/.vim/xpt on your
      runtimepath? See :echo &rtp for your current runtimepath.

      Regards,
      Chip Campbell
