Xapian, KinoSearch

I’m starting in (again) on KS and Xapian backends for SWISH::Prog, using libswish3.

I just downloaded the latest Xapian release (1.0.10) and latest KS from svn. I started the build process for Xapian first, then svn up’d KS and started the KS build. The KS build finished, and all tests passed, before Xapian even finished its build. That could be due to the speed of the gcc vs g++ compilers. Dunno. It was just a startling thing to notice.

Now back to writing code…
