I think it does also need to run to create the index before you can use it. I 
don't if its done only by installing the missing package.  I know in KDE world 
muon packagemanager does update the xapian index when installing (in the 
postinst script). Synaptic does not do this so it needs to be run manually 
which might be a little bit complicated when using an automatic build 

But in general +1 for this.
