That is possible also. It would require that for a gui and non-gui
version of vim one would have to build vim twice. Also, one would not
get the same behaviour as with non-pkgized vim, which starts non-gui
version with 'vim' and a gui version with 'vim -g' or 'gvim', regardless
of which widget set was used.

I'd rather try to avoid this unless there is someone to whom it actually
matters ;)
