We did claim that we had Lucene building support in 2.52. However, it
didn't actually work :-(
I am currently finishing the implementation and it will be in the next
release (due in a week or so).

To use Lucene, you need to have index specifications like those for
mgpp, and you need to add the line
buildtype lucene
to the etc/collect.cfg file in your collection.
