If you are talking about Linux then there is TeX Live distribution (TUG TeX
Live) and texlive packages. latexmk availability depends on how you install
TUG TeX Live (full scheme or not, I didn't investigate this I prefer to use
full always) but if you are referring to texlive packages (Linux distribution
packages) then the latexmk could be available as distribution package.

It could be a problem either on Windows (suppose one could use MikTeX but
Emacs on Windows is a bit a pain, IMHO) or on Mac but if one uses TUG TeX Live
I'm sure there would be latexmk.

Of course, it would be best if there will be a note in documentation.
