There's also these defines which are set by "#include <xapian.h>":
#define XAPIAN_VERSION "0.9.2"
#define XAPIAN_MAJOR_VERSION 0
#define XAPIAN_MINOR_VERSION 9
#define XAPIAN_REVISION 2
But both of these are the version you're compiling against, which with
dynamic libraries may not be the same as the version you're actually
running with (if the ABIs are compatible you could be using a newer or
even an older version!)
There's not current a method in the library to report this information
(and hence the bindings can't report it) but arguably there should be.
