      If Gentoo's vim/gvim are elsewhere (e.g. in /usr/bin/vim with runtime files in
      /usr/share/vim/vim71/) then you can "make install" with no problems: it will
      install your own-compiled Vim in /usr/local/bin (which is earlier in the
      $PATH) with runtime files in /usr/local/share/vim/vim71/. Any package
      dependencies will still be fulfilled by Gentoo's Vim, but invoking "vim" will
      run yours -- which shouldn't be a problem if it's a Big or Huge version --
      "bigger" than Gentoo's, so it has at least the same capabilities.

      Yes. If your Vim is compiled "with GUI", "vim -g" is identical with "gvim"
      (assuming gvim redirects to vim). If it isn't, neither will work.

      Best regards,
      Certainly there are things in life that money can't buy, but it's very funny--
      Did you ever try buying them without money?
