We are removing the check for three reasons that I can see:
1) Libwebsockets works just fine with both libev and libevent with
this check removed.
2) Some people may be using libwebsockets with libev and libevent
installed, and this is the least disruptive patch.
3) If I had set a check in the make file that favored either libev or
libevent over the other, who is to say that one should take
    precedence over the other?
