vim not compiled with gui?

Hi all,
I use vim most of the time to code stuff, recently i remembered that there was a "gui" version of vim. Searched a bit and found out it was gvim, now when i try to execute it it tells me: "E25: No se puede usar el GUI: no se ha activado al compilar." Which means: Cannot use GUI: it wasn't activated at compile time. This is the slackware official one, do i have something wrong or maybe somebody forgot to enable it?

I do have vim and xvim (the one that includes gvim) of course.
Forgot to say, i use -current.
