No, we won't provide language grammar libraries with Emacs.  You will
have to download and install them yourself.  They are shared libraries
written in C/C++, and maintained and distributed by people who have no
affiliation with the Emacs project.

Then please take this up with your distro folks.  Or build the
libraries yourself, it isn't hard.

You don't need to.

Easier, yes.  But up to a point.  We cannot be expected to distribute
third-party libraries instead of the distro.
