My guess is that you're building Search::Xapian against an uninstalled xapian-core. It may be more smooth to install core first, build the perl bindings against it, then install the bindings. Obviously you'll have to install with an overridden --prefix, as you suggest. (You may also have to add one or both of those locations to LD_LIBRARY_PATH or similar for the library to be found.)

It might help if you post the entire run (configure - make - make install) for both xapian-core and Search::Xapian on gist or pastebin.
