Okay; looks like you've changed simpleexpand.cc to use features you've added to the main Xapian library. Three things:

1. did you use configure --enable-maintainer-mode? If not, changes to Makefile.mk (and other parts of the build system) won't be used, because the Makefile that drives the build system won't be regenerated.

2. if that doesn't help, I need a patch between the tarball source and yours to see what you've changed and help further.

3. I'd strongly recommend using version control, for various reasons. git is very common, has plenty of tutorial articles to get you going, and plays well with the way we develop Xapian. github is free to use, and convenient (and Xapian's source is on there), or some people prefer gitorious (Xapian's on there also).
