I have hacked XEmacs to re-assign all those function pointers, good enough
to get it running.  But this hack is too ugly, so I never bothered to send
the patch upstream (I also never used XEmacs myself, so I don't care
much).  I've heard that the current version of XEmacs use a different
dumper which doesn't have this problem any more, but I didn't test it yet.

Since GNU Emacs does not assign function pointers at runtime there was
never such a problem.
