Why aren't you using Interchange's text search? It does this type of thing
pretty well, certainly better than what you can construct with a SQL query.
All that is required is that you export to a text file.
If your database is so huge that you are going to externally index you
should probably try to leverage swish-e (which has an IC module) or
mNoGoSearch or something.
