OK so this is really unintuitive, but while in the wiki there is a button labeled "Search" directly under the search box, it will take you here http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=Special:Search .
You have to click that then use the wiki only search box on that new page, and then you'll still get crappy results, but skinning did provide relevant results.

I tend to google "site:xbmc.org/[forum,wiki] searchterm" because the site's search fails all around (thanks to jmarshall who suggested google when I complained about the site's search engine in irc)
Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search and search the forum before posting.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please read how to submit a proper bug report.

If you're interested in writing addons for xbmc, read docs and how-to for plugins and scripts ||| http://code.google.com/p/xbmc-addons/
