Ok, so I've been working on a Xapian implementation for CouchDB to feed off of in Ruby. Just a quick note for anyone who is attempting the same.

1. On OSX, everything works great, the bindings install to their proper places. All is well with the world.

2. However, in production mode, on a Gentoo server, running make check reveals that we are unable to find our file.

SO, in order to remedy this and to save anyone else looking for this fine obscure error. Run make install...

You'll then notice any of your Ruby scripts are unable to process anything that even mentions the word 'xapian'.

Then, simply do the following:

cd /usr/local/lib
cp /usr/lib64/

et voila!

You are now ready for some fulltext goodness and if you're like me are now ready for some much needed rest.
