I think itimers are broken in XEmacs HEAD, it's on my list of
things to look at.  There was a change a while back to handle delays

Lazy shot is a just-in-time fontlock accelerator, whose author is
currently not available AFAIK.  It is not necessary to get
fontlocking.  You may get substantially better results by using
fastlock or lazy-lock instead.
