 Think again, when you get past the current problem.  I've not built
vim-6.3 yet, and I don't recall problems with that version of less, but
from memory grep-2.5 fails its testsuite.

 Try googling for the exact version(s), e.g. 'vim-6.2.tar'.  ibiblio
usually has this sort of stuff, so does rocklinux, and often you can
find places with the lfs-packages, in fact google knows of at least one
that has all three of these, even if they were put there for LFS-5.0.
