it comes to the same thing really, you want to say

if the old latex allocation scheme is in use do nothing (as
\xe at alloc@intercharclass
already defined)
  \countdef\xe at alloc@intercharclass=257

test for "old scheme" can be

\ifx\e at alloc\@undefined


\ifx\xe at alloc@intercharclass\@undefined\else

whichever you think looks more natural.

the test is only really needed if the code was added to the package
the ini file or latex.ltx can presumably assume that the new scheme
is being used.
