You could search for regexp in the debbugs database. Install the debbugs
package from GNU ELPA, and perform the following command:

M-x debbugs-gnu-search <RET> [RX] ^mac$ <RET> package <RET> emacs <RET> <RET>

<RET> means the return key. "[RX] ^mac$" is the query you have to enter
(w/o apostrophes). It's a little bit strange syntax; read the debbugs
user guide for further explanation. "package" and "emacs" limit the
search to Emacs related problems; debbugs hosts also bugs for other GNU

It will take a while to search, then you get 2006 hits, where the word
"mac" has been used in the bug messages (case insensitive). This
includes all closed and archived bugs. In order to filter them out,
press x (the key "x"), and you will see 428 still open bugs, which
contain the word "mac".
