Philippe says no, so I didn't make this change.

Fixed.

I just moved the global to be a static in the block that uses it.
This seemed just as good and avoided more #ifdefs.

Here's what I'm checking in.

    Instantiate a single source highlighter
    
    It occurred to me that there's no reason to make a new source
    highlighter each time gdb needs to highlight some source code.
    Instead, a single one can be created and then simply reused each time.
    
    This patch implements this idea.  Tested on x86-64 Fedora 29.
