Description of problem:
According to the vim manpage

       -x          Use  encryption  when  writing  files.    Will
                   prompt for a crypt key.

but when I try to do that:

    $ vi -x JF
    VIM - Vi IMproved 5.7 (2000 Jun 24, compiled Jan 31 2001 06:11:07)
    Unknown option: "-x"
    More info with: "vim -h"

Seems the program and its manpage really ought to agree on what is
or is not supported :)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Verify manpage contents by "man vim"
2.  Enter "vim -x JF" at a shell prompt
3.  See error message.

vi == vim-minimal == vim without any features.

Install the vim-enhanced package and invoke it as vim (or "alias vi=vim").
