indic text displayed in debian's version of emacs
Description of problem:
Indic text is not displayed correctly in fedora shipped emacs. Indic text is displayed correctly in emacs shiiped with debian.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open emacs
2. type indic text (copy + paste സ്വാതന്ത്ര്യം)
3. compare with display in debian version (see attachment)
Indic text is not displayed correctly
display indic text by default
a recompile with addition --with-libotf --with-m17n-flt did not make any difference.
[pravi@savannah debian]$ pkg-config --modversion libotf
[pravi@savannah debian]$ pkg-config --modversion m17n-flt
Thanks upstream (Kenichi Handa). The fix I got to have correct Indic rendering is to have m17n-db-datafiles installed on system.
I request following line to be added to emacs.spec
Can we have this fix for F-12 and F-11 also if possible?
Also please backport changes in lisp/language/indian.el to display ZWJ
changes to lisp/language/indian.el can be seen at http://cvs.savannah.gnu.org/viewvc/emacs/lisp/language/indian.el?root=emacs&r1=1.38&r2=1.39

I just separated the flt datafiles from m17n-db-datafiles to a new
package m17n-db-flt which is required by a new m17n-lib-flt library
package so f13 emacs no longer needs to require the large
