Syntax highlighting not working in vim73

Harrington, John

Larry Hall, responding to my earlier posting, suggested I post a follow-up following the reporting guidelines.

See my root post for the general description.

Larry suggested I move all my configuration files out of the way, open my .bashrc and type :syntax on.

I moved my vimrc and .vimrc files to a temp dir from ~ and user/share/vim and usr/share/vim73 and opened a new window.  :syntax on still does not work.  

I tried moving my .profile and .bashrc files as well.  :syntax on still does not work.

I enclose my cygcheck log.

Thanks for your help!,
