I use grep locally. Nothing fancy. Takes probably a 10 minutes or so to perform a first-time grep on the entire tree. Subsequent searches are a bit faster as long as I don't do anything to disrupt caching.

I keep my local repository reasonably current. Usually no less than weekly I pull everything and rebuild everything, although I pull local modules more often as they affect my builds. When there is a flurry of patching I'll pull everything daily, even more often if necessary.
