Those problems exists but, unfortunately, what we could do to fix them
is limited. The complexity is not on setting-up Emacs itself, but on
installing and integrating the required *external dependencies* with the
corresponding Emacs package. It is very similar to setting Emacs on
Windows to work with grep, etc but with the added problem that the
external tools are not simple executable files that you must put on the
right place, but huge frameworks that comes on several variations
depending on their version and publisher.
