Have you checked out the Xapian code from git and got it to build?

The PHP bindings project also involves working on SWIG (which generates
a lot of the code in most of the language bindings, including PHP).
Building Xapian from git actually includes building SWIG, so once you've
built Xapian, you'll have a built git checkout of SWIG in the "swig"

You should also read through the linked pages in the "Resources" section
of the PHP bindings project idea, especially the first one.
