This is Vim. Not LaTeX and not MacTeX.

I would imagine a better place to ask questions would be  here:

http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=475 and http://vim-latex.sourceforge.net/

unless of course someone on this list knows about Vim.
I wouldn't have a clue.
BTW: you could always just delete the if/else/endif and just force
generation of pdf.
