Good news. I'm aware of the conflicts you mention. I'm not sure that
we need evince-dvi (not sure if its a requirement of anything though
and hence gets pulled in automatically). For the evince vs
sugar-evince I suspect we need to try and get the mainline evince
split out into evince and evince-libs so that we can build
sugar-evince against it similar to what we do with abiword and write
(I think that's its name). As for the gconf2-dbus...... I know that's
used over the usual dbus to drop out the bonobo dependencies but
whether that is still a factor at the moment with the other things
that pull bonobo in I'm not sure so it might be worthwhile working out
whether we stick with it or move back to the mainline version. Not
sure who knows the answer to that one, I know DSD got it compiled up
but other than that I don't know the best person to ask.
