there is one file
and macros/latex/required/babel/lahyph.tex  links to it.

there is no macros/language -- what you wrote was obviously a mistake.

the reason that there's a file name lahyph.tex in babel, at all, is
historic.  claudio sent the first version of the file to johannes, ages
ago, and johannes put it into babel rather than suggesting it should go
in the canonical ctan place (at the time, language/hyphenation had
lahyph7 and lahyph8).  he subsequently asked us to tidy it up: the link
is therefore attempting to hide the confusion caused by that change.  we
could probably kill the link, now (it's obviously not mirrored from
johannes' site now).
