I just built and installed the latest versions of those libraries
(available from the m17n.org website), and everything worked.

What functionality do they add?  AFAIK, AA-fonts work fine without them.

They are to provide so called CTL (Complex Text Layout)
facility for Indic scripts and etc. using OpenType fonts.

Ok thanks.

Does it make sense to add something about this in the summary configure puts out at the end? Like

  Complex Text Layout     yes/no
  OpenType fonts          yes/no

I could to that. Is it a one to one mapping, i.e. libotf => OpenType fonts and m17n => CTL or are both required?
