Vim, lately?

As I write this, Vim 7 is making waves as the next great thing in Open Source software; although it's not yet available in most package management systems. Fortunately, Vim is easy to compile from source. I used the following to compile the source on my Ubuntu laptop:

sudo apt-get build-dep vim-gtk
sudo aptitude install xlibs-dev
svn co
cd vim7
./configure --enable-gui --enable-perlinterp
--with-compiledby='Codefix Consulting <>'
make && sudo make install
