           Summary: Vim - FHS Compliance notes are bogus
           Product: Linux From Scratch
           Version: CVS
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Book
        AssignedTo: lfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: gschafer at zip.com.au
         QAContact: lfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org

AFAICT, vim does not use the localstatedir. In other words, passing
--localstatedir=/var/lib/vim to vim is not going to make it use that dir for its
temporary state files.

We need to do one of the following:-
1. Fix the vim source code to respect the localstatedir (difficult)
2. Get rid of the vim FHS compliance notes paragraph altogether (easy)
3. Change the wording to reflect reality (easy)

Take your pick! :)
