|What did you link? I haven't used your extension, but it should overlay /usr leveraging unionfs. If you added links from /opt to those locations it's still overwriting /usr. No?|
Edit: And if it's overwriting /usr, is it doing it now via unionfs or RAM as a dsl would?
I don't think it's overwriting anything; I added link "vim" to /usr/local/share. That solved the issue.
Personally, I think recompiling is the best way to solve the problem, since it not only eliminates the manual work of making symlinks, etc, it also saves you the trouble of making a 'user.tar.gz' file with the data files (e.g. help-menu files, spellcheck files) that are in '/usr/local/share/vim/vim71/'.
Actually, I simply used a wrapper, which checks to see if there's a link, if not adds it A wrapper is frequently needed with UCI's anyway, such as for exporting paths to libraries.
