Current INSTALL has this section.  What should be added?

* Complex Text Layout support libraries

Emacs needs the optional libraries "m17n-db", "libm17n-flt", "libotf"
to correctly display such complex scripts as Indic and Khmer.
On some systems, particularly GNU/Linux, these libraries may be
already present or available as additional packages.  Note that if
there is a separate `dev' or `devel' package, for use at compilation
time rather than run time, you will need that as well as the
corresponding run time package; typically the dev package will contain
header files and a library archive.  Otherwise, you can download and
build libraries from sources.

The sources of these libraries are available by anonymous CVS from

    % cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvs/m17n login
    % cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvs/m17n co m17n-db
    % cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvs/m17n co m17n-lib
    % cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvs/m17n co libotf

For m17n-lib, if you have problems with making the whole package
because you lack some other packages on which m17n-lib depends, try to
configure it with the option "--without-gui".
