6.4 was used by me as a plain text editor, with default settings.
AFAIR I've written the "set cindent" someday in the vim, and that worked
for me, so I suppose that old vim has put the config somewhere, and that
config was erased when I installed 7. I use gentoo, so it couldn't be
/etc (the /etc in gentoo is protected), and I don't think that new
install (or uninstall) could mess with my $HOME.
But now I get to know vim better, and all of course goes to the $HOME/.vimrc
