A script to bisect vim portably
# set -x
# vim is really hard to run portably; I can't seem to get `set rtp=./runtime/`
# to actually work, so we build it with a prefix pointing to $PWD and then
# symlink `share/vim/` so it points to the files we need.
if mkdir share 2>&1 >/dev/null; then
ln -s $(pwd) share/vim
