Version of GCC (or other compiler) would be useful too.

Not entirely. I’d just do:

$ cd xapian
$ rm xapian-letor/.nobootstrap
$ ./bootstrap
$ ./configure
$ make

which presents slightly different options to what you’ve done (in particular yours doesn’t enable maintainer mode, I think), and so may explain the warnings. Manu, you could try the above instructions and see if the warnings go away.
