The commercial fisheye product does this:
http://www.atlassian.com/software/fisheye/ and it has some other
features - but it's not free.

You might be able to roll some kind of search out of htdig, perhaps
pointing it at viewvc instead of the subversion view.

If you are mostly interested in the head version and mostly in code, you
can point opengrok:
at a checked out copy of a project and it will give you a search with
linked cross-references between code definitions and references plus
some support for accessing the version log.
