This is a good place to ask the question.

You're right, Subversion doesn't have a search feature. There are third-party products you can use for that. You could even build one. They work by indexing your commits as they happen, using a post-commit hook. FishEye is a commenrial product I've heard of that I think does what you want (though I've never used it), but I'm sure there are others, possibly even open source or at least free ones.

This specific feature is usually implemented the other way around: in a post-commit hook, you parse the commit message for the ticket number. If found, you insert a comment into the ticket (hopefully your issue tracker has an API to do that) linking back to this revision (in a web-based Subversion revision viewer, which you'll probably also want a separate piece of software for, such as WebSVN, Trac, ViewVC, etc.).
