I don't think configure easily can - this issue only emerges in the Makefile
when the full compile command line is assembled, so we'd have to duplicate
the information on how that is assembled in configure, which seems rather

I think you'd have to put the information from xapian-config --version in
to config.h, then put some preprocessor magic into the code which gets
compiled to complain if that doesn't match what you get from <xapian.h>.

Anyway, "patches welcome" as they say...
