I always just go to the custom query page [1], add a summary filter,  
and put the port name there; as long as people follow the proper trac  
ticketing guidelines [2] this works quite nicely.  E.g., only three  
hits for open sbcl tickets (#14036, #14241, and #15157).

I've found using the base search portion of trac, though, does result  
in lots of excess, since it defaults to search tickets (all parts of  
them, open and closed), changesets, and the wiki...
