I don't have an answer for you, but just to be sure what you are asking:

You're not talking about highlighting the text that the regexp matches.
You just want to highlight the regexp itself.  Right?

I ask because older Emacs versions do not highlight regexp matches, and
if that's all you want then one answer is to either use a newer Emacs
or use library grep+.el.
