I am runing vim/vim-common 1:7.0-219+1 in testing.  ISTR that on a
recent upgrade, I to, lost syntax highlighting.  Looking in the .vimrc
I found this, which was commented out.
" Vim5 and later versions support syntax highlighting. Uncommenting the next
" 3 lines enables syntax highlighting by default.
if has("syntax") && &t_Co > 2
  syntax on
syntax on
    au FileType c syntax on
