I was going to suggest that this belonged on the Doc list rather than 
Hackers, but I decided to verify first... and search is working for 
me, from the Codex Main Page, wordpress.org, and other Codex pages, 
and the Next Page link also works for me. I specifically tested by 
searching for "permalink", as you apparently did, and got several 
pages of results.

One thing I noticed was that on the search results page, there were 
check boxes to search Doc, Forums, etc. You might want to verify that 
at least one of those is checked, and then try searching again. 
Perhaps you unchecked all of them at some time in the past by mistake, 
and a cookie is remembering your settings? You might try blowing away 
all cookies from codex.wordpress.org and wordpress.org, and see if 
that helps. And then there is the standard "make sure your browser 
cache is clear" browser troubleshooting suggestion. Try that too, then 
let us know what happens...
