[Xapian-discuss] Problem installing Xapian python bindings on Mac OS X

I am using xapian-bindings-1.0.16.tar.gz

./configure --prefix=$HOME PYTHON=/usr/bin/python
PYTHON_LIB=/Library/Python/2.6/site-packages  --with-python --without-ruby
--without-php --without-tcl

and I get
configure: error: Can't find xapian-config, although the xapian-core runtime
library seems to be installed.  If you've installed xapian-core from a
package, you probably need to install an extra package called something like
xapian-core-devel in order to be able to build code using the Xapian

I cannot find xapian-core-devel either.

Any suggestions.
