Assuming you have the object files from a buildworld hanging around, then
cd /usr/obj/usr/src/usr.bin/vi
cc -O -pipe -o vi *.o -lncurses -static && strip vi && mv vi /bin/

Two modifications made this work fine:
- I hadn't done a buildworld, but doing the following got the same result:
   cd /usr/src/usr.bin/vi
   make && cc -O -pipe -o vi *.o -lncurses -static && strip vi && mv vi /bin/
- As pointed out off-line, you also need to get it the termcap library. Doing
   cp /usr/share/misc/termcap.db /root/.termcap.db
fixes that.

might want to install e3, which is only 13k statically linked and uses

Nice! e3 built from the ports collection linked statically automatically. e3 didn't work correctly on my console (it didn't recognize the Alt key), but e3vi worked fine and felt just like vi.

Thanks! I now feel better about emergencies.
