Are you running Gentoo? If so are you referring to the "gnome"
use-flag? This only turns of nautilus filesystem support, evince still
depends on the gnome-icon-theme which drags in any dependencies.
Otherwise, how are you installing evince?
Evince is just the main example, the problem still exists with totem and
ffmpeg-thumbnailer. Also it would be nice to have the priorities so
people can have multiple thumbnailers for the same format - the fastest
(by priority) being chosen when TryExec is found.
