evince appears to have no built-in paper size.

In the latest versions of evince, ~/.gnome2/evince/print-settings has 
the needed paper size and layout settings.  But without 
gnome-settings-daemon running, it can't get those settings. 
sysutils/gnome-settings-daemon has a bunch of audio dependencies I don't 
want, but I may try it later.

If evince just had A4 as a default, it could be patched.  But it appears 
to get the A4 size from gnome, somehow.
