I have recently installed FreeBSD 4.7, VNC, and VIM.  When 
attempting to use gvim under vnc vim fails.  Everything is 
fine when I log in normally (console and startx) however when 
I run gvim under VNC with the -V5 option I get the following 

finished sourcing /usr/local/share/vim/vim61/syntax/syntax.vim
continuing in /home/ptacek/.gvimrc
Testing the X display failed
Hit ENTER or type command to continue

and then it loads in standard (non gui) mode.
All other programs seem to work (xterm, mozilla, xemacs, etc).  
This seems to be localized to gvim.  I had been running 
FreeBSD 3.2 and the latest (or recent) VIM and VNC without any 
issues.  I am guessing it has something to do with the newer 
versions of XFree86 installed on FreeBSD 4.7.  Anyone else have 
a similar setup working or experiencing similar issues?
