you can use tags 

,--------------------------------------------------------------------
| http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/eintr/etags.html
`--------------------------------------------------------------------

or a function like this:

,---------------------------------------------------
| ;; jumps to the source of the symbol at point
| (defun tj/goto-symbol-definition ()
|   "jump to the source of the symbol at point."
|   (interactive)
|   (require 'finder)
|   (let ((thing (intern (thing-at-point 'symbol))))
|     (if (functionp thing)
|         (find-function thing)
|       (find-variable thing))))
`---------------------------------------------------
