vim + clipboard facilities : turned off? How does one enable them?

I was looking for a method to send text from a vim buffer to the system
clipboard. I came across this[1]. 

The fedora Vim package has clipboard facility disabled:

[ankurGuest at 070905042 PhD]$ vim --version | grep -i clipboard
-clientserver -clipboard +cmdline_compl +cmdline_hist +cmdline_info
 -xterm_clipboard -xterm_save

Ubuntu apparently has a package vim-full where the clipboard facilities
etc. is enabled. Is there a similar package in Fedora? I'd really like
to stick to fedora packages. Is there a reason why this is turned off?
