    Default Installing vim7 on my vps

    I am trying to install vim7 on my vps, and am having difficulties.

    I compile it and try to "make" it and I get an error that starts off here:

    gcc -c -I. -Iproto -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -g -O2 -o objects/buffer.o buffer.c
    In file included from buffer.c:28:
    vim.h:41: parse error before `:'
    In file included from /usr/include/bits/types.h:143,
    from /usr/include/stdio.h:36,
    from os_unix.h:21,
    from vim.h:233,
    from buffer.c:28:

    I checked vim.h and the parse error originates with this section:

    * Check if configure correcly managed to find sizeof(int). If this failed,
    * it becomes zero. This is likely a problem of not being able to run the
    * test program. Other items from configure may also be wrong then!
    # if (SIZEOF_INT == 0)
    Error: configure did not run properly. Check auto/config.log.
    # endif

    I checked the config.log, there are several "failed programs", and now I'm stumped. What does it mean that "This is likely a problem of not being able to run the test program."? And what does it mean that sizeof(int) is returning 0?

    Or, on the other hand, are there any pre-compiled binaries available that anyone knows of off-hand that would work?

    ** UPDATE: I just noticed another thread that was posted this morning (after I had scoured the forums for any info for weeks ) with info on installing this... I'll check that out.
