If you also run Linux, you can copy your ~/.vimrc or the systemwide one to 
your FreeBSD as ~/.vimrc and that should fix the problem.  Also export your 
editor as vim in your ~/.bashrc.  In addition, I make an alias so that when I 
use 'vi' as a command, I get 'vim' and not what FreeBSD uses as vi by 
default.  I had the same problems that you report.
