* 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.

terminal includes such a support.
