you need to enable the Xserver's Shape extension to run Enlightenment.
Shape is what lets you have non-square windows: E uses it lots, as does
try putting the following in your XF86Config in the "Module" section,
probably near the top:
# This loads the DBE extension module
Load "dbe" # Double buffer extension
# This loads the miscellaneous extension module, and disables
# initialisation of the XFree86-DGA extension within that module.
Option "omit xfree86-dga" # don't initialise the DGA extension
(there was some conflict with that stuff and shape or something, iirc)
