      Try "make reconfig" (which should be run every time you change your Vim
      configuration or install new "development" packages used by Vim). You
      may need to delete src/auto/config.cache and set configure settings via
      environment variables, see

      If you have hand-edited your sources out of recognition, you may even
      have to start with a fresh set.

      In Riemann, Hilbert or in Banach space
      Let superscripts and subscripts go their ways.
      Our asymptotes no longer out of phase,
      We shall encounter, counting, face to face.
