I have a limited OS, and compiling vim. How to disable libsodium lib?

I installed libsodium18 and libsodium-dev and libsodium-dbg, but I get the following errors:

error: 'crypto_pwhash_argon2id_SALTBYTES' undeclared here (not in function)
  • Probably configure without sodium or edit the makefile

  • Can you provide more information? What version is libsodium-dev? How do you compile (e.g. what configure flags did you use)? Can you show a logfile of configure and compile? Feb 20, 2022 at 22:02

When configuring vim before building, disable libsodium

./configure   ...    --disable-libsodium    ...
