EGD was only necessary for some commercial UNIX systems, versions that needed 
it all reached end of life. It no longer makes sense to have any code referring 
to it.

        EGD needed until        OS release date
IRIX    6.5.19                  feb 2003
Solaris 2.6                     jul 1997
AIX     5.2                     oct 2002
Tru64   5.1B                    sep 2002
HP-UX   11i v2                  sep 2003

Please check OpenBSD's patches to remove EGD support from Python for many
