No, it covers both:

| For convenience you can install a package to pull in his package repository
| and then you can install the packages using yum:
|    $ su
|     enter your root password
|     # rpm -ivh http://rpm.eprints.org/rpm-eprints-org-key-1-1.noarch.rpm
|     # rpm -ivh http://rpm.eprints.org/xapian/6/noarch/rpm-eprints-org-xapian-6-1.noarch.rpm
|     # yum update
|     # yum install xapian-omega xapian-bindings-{php,python,tcl8,perl,ruby}

So this (xapian-bindings-perl) would be the SWIG-based Perl bindings.

| (or whatever Xapian packages you want to install).
| perl-Search-Xapian is available for those not using the SWIG bindings. 

And this is the hand-coded XS bindings.
