OK, add_term_nopos was renamed to add_term in xapian-core 0.8.0, and
omega 0.8.0 uses the new name.

So I suspect what's happening is that there's an older version of
xapian-core also installed, and that omega's configure is picking
up that version.

Try this from the omega directory:

grep xapian-config config.log

One of the lines found should look something like:

configure:18036: result: /u1/olly/install/bin/xapian-config

The number and path may be different.  What is the path?  Is it the same
one you installed xapian-core on (the default is /usr/local)?

Then run *that* xapian-config with --version - in my case that's:

/u1/olly/install/bin/xapian-config --version

What version is reported?
