FYI: it seems that nvim executable is there but it fails with SIGKILL when you try to run it. Check the #13399 issue in the NeoVim bug-tracker.

~/P/g/neovim $ file ./build/bin/nvim
./build/bin/nvim: Mach-O 64-bit executable arm64

~/P/g/neovim $ ./build/bin/nvim
fish: “./build/bin/nvim” terminated by signal SIGKILL (Forced quit)

There is a #PR 12624 with Apple Silicon support. The build should be fine when it is merged.

unfortunately neovim can be slow with their releases. both 12624 and 13399 has been merged already in master months ago.

is it possible to have a local patch (like in openbsd ports) and get this going? it's kind of difficult to be without an editor :)

See what happens.

Replying to minusf:
