It is possible to force spotlight to index /usr (a normally hidden  
and un-indexed directory) using Terminal or, using the GUI with  
SpotlightIndexer. The index will work until the next change and then  
will be incorrect so you'll have to do it over. I wish there was a  
Force Indexing tab (like the Privacy tab to force a directory not to  
be indexed --- e.g., I force Privacy on ~/Library/Caches/) in the  
Spotlight preference pane.

Good Luck,
