Where is LEIM for cygwin's emacs 21.2?

Very rarely I need to type one or two japanese characters in my
emacs, and I recall that I did it with LEIM and set-input-method quite
easily.   However, in my current installation, emacs says that LEIM
isn't installed.

The cygwin installer says:
   LEIM is part of emacs package now.

The directory where LEIM used to be, /usr/share/21.2/leim/, exists but
is empty, both on my machine and on

There's no LEIM at all in
but the title says "(including LEIM)".

As a workaround, I fetched emacs-leim from the web, extracted the
tar.bz2 and symlinked the contents to /usr/share/21.2/leim.  Now
set-input-method works as expected.  But I doubt that this is how it
ought to be.

 * Is there something wrong with my installation (old installation,
   carried over from another machine)?

 * Did I miss to install / re-install an emacs package?

 * Is it a packaging error with cygwin's emacs-el 21.2 package?

 * Would a switch to emacs and emacs-el 23.0.92 be the recommended
   solution (emacs-el 23.0.92 apparently contains LEIM)?
