This is telling you that configure didn't find the required tools for
building bindings for any supported language.
You asked for "--with-python", so this means that configure didn't
find the Python-related things it needs. Perhaps it's also under
"/opt/local" and you don't have "/opt/local/bin" on your PATH. Look
at the output from configure where it probes for "python" and "Python.h"

If you have python installed, but not on your PATH, you need to tell
configure where it is. You can see how in "./configure --help" - see
also the INSTALL document in the xapian-bindings sources.
