Not that I know of.

Version 3.2 will have this feature. The database changes needed to do
this will hopefully go in in the next week or two, but it will take some
time before phrase searching is actually implemented.

Others can correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe any other free
indexing packages do. I mention indexing because there are probably some
that don't index that offer this feature. However, they just search for
the pattern in all the files, which is much slower than a search/index
