Correct, there is currently no way to search the contents of files in
a repository. You can check out a working copy of the relevant part
of the repository and search that using local tools. Or you can
install a web-based repository viewer which contains a search and
indexing feature. I'm not sure which web-based repository viewers
offer this.
