1- it should be written in emacs lisp.
2- you should search words using \< \> in regexp, to avoid finding
   "isisCircLevelISPriority" when searching for "elisp".

Something like:

    (defvar *rfc-base-directory* "/data/doc/rfc/")q

    (defun search-rfc (word)
      (interactive "sRFC Search Word: ")
      (find-grep (format  "find %S -name \\*.txt -exec grep -nHi %s {} \\;"
                          (shell-quote-argument *rfc-base-directory*)
                          (shell-quote-argument (concat "\\<" word "\\>")))))
