[Xapian-discuss] compile problem

I just downloaded the 0.9.7 version of the software and configured it with a
simple: ./configure on a box where I was able to configure 0.9.6 with no
problem. At some point fairly deep into the make process I received the error:

backendmanager.cc: In member function 'Xapian::WritableDatabase
BackendManager::getwritedb_remote(const std::vector<std::basic_string<char,
std::char_traits<char>, std::allocator<char> >,
std::allocator<std::basic_string<char, std::char_traits<char>,
std::allocator<char> > > >&)':
backendmanager.cc:481: error: conversion from 'Xapian::Database' to non-scalar
type 'Xapian::WritableDatabase' requested
make[2]: *** [backendmanager.lo] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/xapian-core-0.9.7/testsuite'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/xapian-core-0.9.7'
make: *** [all] Error 2

This is being compiled under Fedora Core 5. Is this some unwanted interaction
with 0.9.6 or some other problem? Any help would be appreciated.
