Gnome's Evince and Poppler

Hi all,

It appears that some of the GNOME stable packages are playing with devel
versions of other packages and I'm not sure which direction to go.

Best I can tell, Evince wants a minimum of version 0.5.1 of the Poppler
library. The 0.5.x versions are development snapshots. The 0.4 x series
is current stable.

Any advice from anyone on which way to go here? KDEgraphics uses Poppler
as well, but I'm not sure what version, and I don't know how much 
API/ABI changes there are between Poppler 0.5.x and 0.4.x.

Anybody got this figured out yet?
