    Looking with a debugger, a lot of time is spent in

    Maybe caching the last position of `directory' and `message' properties
    would make a difference ?

Do you mean caching at the Lisp level inside Font-Lock mode?
That might be easy to do.

Where is previous-single-property-change being called from?
Maybe a change there is what we need.

Aside from that, I have a feeling it is wrong for Compilation
mode to turn on Font-Lock mode by default.  This nonuniformity
in the control of Font-Lock mode seems wrong.
