I believe they're saying that it's not part of the base install.
I did notice that.

Speaking of links, that must produce some odd effects - the last
I knew, "links" was not aware of UTF-8, and Redhat 8/9 default
to UTF-8 locales.

irssi is another bad example - has hardcoded assumptions about things
that could be checked by looking in the termcap.  (irssi uses termcap
for some things, but not others).
