When I run:
rsync -avzcP --delete --exclude="/dos/" --exclude="/spell/" \
then, as root:
make -C src installruntime
I get an error:
cp ../runtime/defaults.vim /sources/vim/dest/usr/share/vim/vim80/defaults.vim
cp: cannot stat '../runtime/defaults.vim': No such file or directory
make: *** [Makefile:2351: installrtbase] Error 1
make: Leaving directory '/sources/vim/vim80/src'
The reason is that rsync removes runtime/defaults.vim! Looks like the mirror
at ftp.nluug.nl does not have defaults;vim anymore, although it is still in
the sources at https://github.com/vim.
Anyway, those instructions don't work, and we should not publish them as they
are. Maybe just remove the --delete is enough...
Also, there is no need to create a gvim.desktop file, since one is installed
by make install.
