In the past, I had similar problems with other programs that
defaulted to LETTER, but here in Germany, we use DIN A4. So
I set those in /etc/make.conf:

        PAGE=           A4
        PAPERSIZE=      a4
        A4=             yes

You would of course have to change A4 to LETTER or US_LETTER.

As far as I see, evince does belong to the Gnome 2 series of
additional programs, so it might (!) be possible that it does
not have own paper default settings, but Gnome has.
