Bug 263577: graphics/evince: v42.2 fails to open pdf

--- Description ---
The newest version 42.2[1] of graphics/evince fails to open pdf files due to
graphics/poppler[-glib] being too old. It turns out that poppler version >=
22.02.0 is needed:


===>  Configuring for evince-42.2
The Meson build system
Version: 0.62.1
Source dir: /usr/ports/graphics/evince/work-full/evince-42.2
Build dir: /usr/ports/graphics/evince/work-full/evince-42.2/_build
Build type: native build
Project name: evince
Project version: 42.2

Dependency poppler-glib found: NO found 22.01.0 but need: '>= 22.02.0'
Run-time dependency poppler-glib found: NO (tried pkgconfig and cmake)
Run-time dependency libxml-2.0 found: YES 2.9.13 WARNING: PDF support is disabled since poppler-glib version >=
22.02.0 or libxml-2.0 version >= 2.5.0 not found

    PDF........................: NO

Poppler 22.04.0 is on the way (bug #263009).

BTW: evince configure does not seem to be able to properly evaluate the version
of textproc/libxml2. It asks for libxml-2.0 version >= 2.5.0, v2.9.13 is
present and is not accepted?
