Same here. Spotlight finds the likes of "usepackage" perfectly. I'm  
running 10.4.3. This is the first time I've tried it, so I can't say  
whether this was the case in previous versions of 10.4

The only emacs I have installed is the pre-built version that comes  
with OS X. Being a vi man, I have not replaced or upgraded this. To  
my knowledge, I've never even run it.
