Ah, you want a cross-history fulltext search engine that can deal with
non-text content? No, as far as I'm aware, no-ones written anything
specifically, though someone recently mentioned that (something like
ViewCVS?) had a (prototype?) cross-history search that worked for
textual files.

You might be able to fake it by exporting the changed files in each
revision of a repository to a regular filesystem, then pointing a standard
search tool (Spotlight, Index Services, Verity, a Google Appliance...)
at them.
