Description of problem:
vim-enhanced-6.1-29 includes a vimdiff symbolic link to the vim executable.
When vim is called like this, it automatically opens in diff mode. Gvim has a
similar behavior if it is called by the name of gvimdiff. Unfortunately, the
gvimdiff symbolic link never gets created. Gvim is already compiled with diff
mode enabled. All it needs is a symbolic link.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run gvimdiff
[todd@perl etc]$ gvimdiff DIR_COLORS DIR_COLORS.rpmnew
bash2: gvimdiff: command not found
Expected Results: Gvim starts up in diff mode
Easy workaround is to do:
ln -s gvim gvimdiff
from the /usr/X11R6/bin directory.
