That's about right (the perl script just searches for uses of the macro
- it doesn't expand it).

Is your tree configured in maintainer mode?  If you use the top-level
configure, this is automatic.  If you use the xapian-core-level
configure, then it won't be.

You can pass --enable-maintainer-mode by hand, but don't do this unless
you have a very good reason to - use the top-level configure, as it also
hooks up omega and the bindings to build against the in-tree
xapian-core, and installs the same versions of some key tools as we use
to bootstrap snapshots and releases, which can avoid some frustrating

If not that, have you added the new api_cluster.cc file to
the collated_apitest_sources list in tests/Makefile.am?
