OK I think I can make it do something, but maybe not what you're expecting??
The instructions treat it like a grep (basically turning history into an
innacurate version of log). Easy to do but I don't think that's what
the command was designed for... and it would be pointless anyway, since,
well, log does it much better.
The code has associations with module parsing. It looks like you're
supposed to provide a module to it and it'll look for a file in a
specific module or group of modules.. however there's no code at the
moment to associate modules with files (and never has been as far back
as I can find, all the way to cvs 1.11) so all it does is compare the
module with NULL all the time (probably meaning it never did anything..
that's now it seems anyway)... making that work probably won't make this
release if at all... partly because I can't find any description of how
that could work outside the comments (I'm guessing something like -m
module -f file -m module2 -f file2 etc.. but might be wrong).
