I tried to install gvim on Scientific Unix 6 (formerly centos) .  I downloaded the runtime + source @ ftp://ftp.vim.org/pub/vim/unix/vim-6.4.tar.bz2.   I exploded and ran Make at top level.

The make ran thru but no binary shows up.  Any ideas?

Can you try running "make install" - you probably just typed "make".
