I was watching BBC Click this morning (will be repeated on News 24
tomorrow and Sunday, then BBC World 1530 Monday) and Jimmy Wales said
Wikia Search would be open source.  Whether that means free software,
I don't know, but you can already do better than Google for
first-choice search anyway... (some other engines have less churn and
behave more ethically, but I acknowledge Google seems to have the
largest database indexed now).
