Have you looked at OpenGrok?

To see it in action on the opensolaris codebase:

      OpenGrok can grok various program file formats like C, C++, Shell
      Scripts like ksh, sh, Perl, Java, Java Class files, JAR files, ELF
      files, troff man pages, file archives like Zip, Gzip, BZip2, Tar
      and meta language files like XML, SGML or HTML.
