From the emacs-21.3/INSTALL file:

|   1. If you want to be able to input international characters which
|      your keyboard doesn't support directly (i.e. you cannot type
|      them at the shell prompt), download the leim-M.N.tar.gz
|      distribution and unpack it into the same directory where you have
|      unpacked the main Emacs distribution.  See ADDITIONAL
|      DISTRIBUTION FILES, below, for more about this.


| * leim-M.N.tar.gz
| The Emacs Lisp code for input methods for various international
| character scripts allows you to input characters in scripts which are
| not directly supported by your keyboard. It is distributed in a
| separate tar file because it amounts to a significant fraction of the
| size of the distribution.  This tar file is called leim-M.N.tar.gz,
| with the same version number as Emacs, and it unpacks into the
| directory emacs-M.N/leim.
| You should unpack leim-M.N.tar.gz into the same directory where you
| have previously unpacked the main Emacs distribution.  It fills in the
| contents of one subdirectory, which is present in the main Emacs
| distribution only in dummy form.
| Once you have unpacked the Leim tar file into the Emacs source tree,
| building and installing Emacs automatically installs the input method
| support as well.  If you have built Emacs without unpacking Leim
| first, just unpack Leim, build Emacs again, and install it again.
