prefer to just build evince to know the default size [...]

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.

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.
