Install vim on FreeBSD without X11

FreeBSD default installation comes with 'vi' and 'ee', but I prefer 'vim'. To install 'vim' without X11, just do it:

# portsnap fetch update
# cd /usr/ports/editors/vim
# make WITHOUT_X11=yes
# make install clean

ps.: A lot of patches will be downloaded by Ports - more than 600.

After installation you can customize your own .vimrc or enjoy Caio's config at:
