I'm kinda surprised this isn't in the FAQ (or at least not in a place that I could find it). It is really impossible to build a vi with no external dependencies that can be installed in /bin? All I want is something that knows how to full-screen edit on the console, nothing else. I dread the day that I can only mount / and not /usr and need to edit fstab or rc.conf, and have to use ed.

(Just in case the answer is "no, you really can't do that", I have put a plain-text copy of the ed man page in /bin, but still...)
