You were writing about XEmacs, which I'm not very familiar with. But in GNU
Emacs, at least as far back as version 20, you can use `M-y' during
incremental search to search for the text in the region. So, just "select a
word or phrase in the code" in whatever way you like (e.g. mouse), and use
`M-y' during isearch to append that text to the search pattern.
