Just to be clear I am not a developer or maintainer of this package. Hence, not a 
specialist on the working of the code.

If you are 100% positive the features are not used and the behaviour of the
code does not change, then go with your option. I was just suggesting the 
#ifdef/#endif option as it has no influence on the behaviour of the code on other 

Maybe you could contact the evas developers, to see what they thing of the patch.
On the enlightenment webpage they provide a bug tracker, a mailing list and they
have some IRC channels on freenode (#e, #edevelop).

Yes please do check. Evas is holding up the rest of EFL and e17 on hurd-i386.
