MediaWiki supports [[Wikipedia:full text search|full text search]]. The limitations of this feature is that it indexes only words longer than 3 characters. If you want to search for shorter words (1 to 3 characters) then a known workaround is to use [http://www.google.com/custom?domains=wiki.archlinux.org&sitesearch=wiki.archlinux.org Google]'s ''sitesearch'' feature. Enter your search items in the form and it will automatically search within ArchWiki.
Of course, you can do the same manually by appending {{Ic|site:wiki.archlinux.org}} to Google searches:
your search items site:wiki.archlinux.org
This works fine, but it is not live. Google is indexing the ArchWiki every 1 to 3 days.
