There is no update in their upstream status. The vim mandir patch needs 
significant reworking (as in: make it a ./configure fragment that 
autodetects the correct setup) to be acceptable upstream. Support for at 
least 10 kinds of proprietary Unix systems is required, and I have 
access only to Linux, FreeBSD and OpenSolaris (ssh accounts are 
welcome). The patch is correct only for LFS, although the problems exist 
on other systems too. And there are unsolvable disagreements (upsream 
demands that the correct setup is autodetected, which is impossible at 
least on Linux).
