I'm sorry - but please explain more clearly what do you want; maybe I
can help you.
There are ways to know which files go where.

One way is:
rpm -ql vim

Other way is to use UnionFS.

Right now, instead of just installing vim, it gets broken into
separate components, vim, gvim, and vim-enhanced. These different
versions don't work together correctly. So, for example, when I have
a modeline in a file, maybe something like '# vim: et sw=3 ts=3', and
then I run gvim, this modeline is completely ignored, apparently since
it is a vim modeline, not gvim.

Also, I have a .vimrc and ~/.vim/ directory that I copy around to
different machines. However, with this split, when I run gvim, my
.vimrc file is ignored.

The default compile and install of vim is not to create this division.
So I'm just wondering if anyone has an rpm or a spec so that I could
get an uncrippled version of vim installed.
