I suspect you haven't added any spellings to your database.

You can either do this from the text being indexed (if using
TermGenerator, then set FLAG_SPELLING to do it automatically:
http://xapian.org/docs/apidoc/html/classXapian_1_1TermGenerator.html )
or add spellings from a dictionary (using WritableDatabase::add_spelling():
http://xapian.org/docs/apidoc/html/classXapian_1_1WritableDatabase.html )
or both if you wish.
