On new search thing on CPAN that looks quite interesting to me is
Plucene -- the Perl port of Lucene, there is an article about it on

  Plucene is a general-purpose search engine; while the
  Plucene::Simple interface to it allows you to get a good search tool
  up and running very quickly, that's very much only the tip of the
  iceberg. By getting into the Plucene API itself, we can build a
  complex, customized search engine for any application.
