Home page for Bibledit is here: [1]

Instructions for installing it on the OLPC can be found there under "Downloads," or here is a direct link: [2]

Note that Bibledit v.2 can be downloaded as an OLPC "activity." This is not yet possible with v. 3 due to limitations of Sugar (a fix is expected eventually), so you'll have to follow the instructions for installing from a tarball (you'll see a link to downloading a recent version compiled for the XO), if you can't compile the most recent version yourself.
