Just a small patch to have vim read /etc/vimrc and /usr/local/etc/vimrc (304 bytes, patch)

Description Danny Sung 2003-02-07 00:37:57 EST
it'd be nice if vim would read /etc/vimrc and /usr/local/etc vimrc for
additional settings.  (Ideally /etc/vim.d, perhaps in so that applications could
possibily incorporate their own vim settings (eg. for their own file formats)).

it'll test if those files exist before trying to source them.
