You really think you can patch it if you can't find what files to look
at?  ;-)

You could try http://people.debian.org/~psg/elisp/font-latex.el and see
if that works better for you.  The original goal of font-latex was to
get included in Emacs, but:

- it may be too much fontification for some users (David's fruit salad
comment)

- I have accepted a few patches over the years and would need copyright
assignment to the FSF from these people.  (I would have no problem
assigning to the FSF, nor I'm sure would Simon Marshall.)  However,
most of the patches were probably for XEmacs and could be yanked out
if necessary anyway.
