Sure can.  That's why I only commented it out and didn't delete it. 
I've tested the instructions as they were, and they are fine with
Enigmail-1.0.1....except I think maybe the path changed a little, or
something to that effect.  I can put it back in.  I just haven't built
it again with Enigmail extension after the first time since I had
installed the binary version and already had it installed local (to my
reused thunderbird profile).  I Enigmail is definitely out of place, but
it does provide an OK example of how to build extensions, though it's a
little misleading as you only need like 4 of the sub-projects built to
provide a suitable environment to compile addons.  In fact, the few that
I've looked at (source) come with instructions telling you exactly how
to setup your build environment.
