* leim-M.N.tar.gz
The Emacs Lisp code for input methods for various international
character scripts is distributed in a separate tar file because of its
large size. This 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. Thus, if you unpack it in the same directory where
you unpacked the Emacs distribution, it fills in a subdirectory
of the Emacs distribution.
If you have already unpacked the Leim tar file into a subdirectory of
the Emacs sources, building and installing Emacs automatically
installs the input method support as well. If you unpack the Leim tar
file into the Emacs sources after building and installing Emacs, just
build Emacs again and install it again.
* intlfonts-VERSION.tar.gz
The intlfonts distribution contains X11 fonts that Emacs needs in
order to display international characters. If you see a non-ASCII
character appear as a hollow box, that means you don't have a font for
it. You might find a font in the intlfonts distribution. That
distribution contains its own installation instructions.
