With the alternative being to pick a fight with the tools, wouldn't it 
be a whole lot more straightforward to install your own vim with 
--prefix $HOME or /usr/local instead?  That's what I do with basically 
all packages I install from sources; and using stow to manage them even 
makes that reasonably painless.
