I do not think that using libev in nginx will change anything.
Probably, the following settings may slightly improve or worsen:
1) turing sendfile off: it may be not effective on small files.
Also not that lighttz does not read file at all each request.
2) using open file cache, it saves 3 syscalls per request (open, fstat, close):
open_file_cache max=1000 inactive=20s;
3) using buffered log:
access_log /path/to/access.log buffer=32k;
or turing it off at all:
4) using 1 worker.
