Is this correct?  I'd asked for vim with termcap support.  Is this what
you mean?

vim + termcap support should provide a standalone version of vim that works
on Windows even without the /etc/termcap and more importantly without
/usr/lib/terminfo/*.

Since you posted about a problem with termcap (which I've hopefully just
fixed by the way) then I assume that this is really a termcap version.

Out of curiousity, does the '-b' option work in this version of vim?  DJ
had once reported that this was broken.
