Just remove it, both actually. The source of make_e17 is not available
anymore and probably wouldn't work anyways as the last update was a year
ago. Since then there have been a few additions/changes to the e17 sources
so I doubt all needed modules are available in  the script (if it were
actually there).
If people want to build e17 from source I have a python script which is
linked on the wiki which makes use of the PKGBUILDs in ABS and there is
easy_e17 available which just installs all packages without creating
.pkg.tar.gz from it.
