The patch is fixing a compilation issue, which seems reasonable. It isn't introducing a build time option, it is merely fixing an typo in an existing one.

Yes, it would be better not to have this build time option (in which case the issue would have been found sooner) but that isn't the responsibility of the person submitting this patch.

That is something that should be pushed back to the author/maintainer.

In the meantime this patch is still valid and should be applied.
