It's not clear simply because it's not the case.
Font-lock uses syntax-tables rather than comment-start and comment-end.

Your problem is that XEmacs uses different settings for
"two-char comment-markers of style b":

>                               (?\n . "> b")
>                               (?/ . ". 1456")

The `56' above is XEmacs specific.  In Emacs, you'd do
use (?/ . ". 124b") instead.  I think the Emacs syntax is accepted
by XEmacs as well.
