Do you have the vim package installed? I doubt it. If you look at
/etc/menu/vim, it probably starts with "?package(vim):" which means that
unless package vim is installed, this menu entry will be ignored.

To add local stuff, try using "?package(menu):" at the front of the line in
themenu file. Since the menu package is of course installed, the menu item
will show up. (There are probably better ways to do this..)
