Is there an easy way to force evince to always use US-Letter as a 
default paper size?  I don't run Gnome or CUPS, just lpd.

The only option that seems to work is to setenv LANG en_US.UTF-8.  I'd 
prefer to just build evince to know the default size instead of having 
to do

sh -c "export LANG=en_US.UTF-8 ; /usr/local/bin/evince filename.pdf"

Even with that, the paper size is only implied by the locale, not 
explicitly set.
