Because Xemacs already has a function named make-glyph with
different semantics.

But maybe we don't need to care about that?

Maybe the face arg should be optional, and we could use the
following names to avoid confusion:

make-display-glyph (char &optional face)
display-glyph-face (glyph)
display-glyph-char (glyph)
