it seems.  Had to go back to 6.4.

Build it from source...
If anyone can advise how to 'fix' the caveat listed at the bottom, I'd appreciate it.

cd /usr/src
mkdir vim
cd vim
svn co
cd vim7
./configure --enable-rubyinterp --enable-cscope --enable-fontset --with-features=huge
make install

only one caveat -- when invoking gvim, you have to pass the -f parameter, otherwise you will get:
gvim: Fatal IO error 128 (Transport endpoint is not connected) on X server :0.0.
