cLucene could be used directly in VFP in a FLL. Work was started on it but I don't think it was finished. There's also good ole PhDBase but there's a problem using it in COM servers.

Here's one written entirely with VFP and works on the web: http://www.foxweb.com/fwFullText/

The paper that describes Google's original process is actually available on the web somewhere.
