I had that problem. It's not evince that uses libxul, it's x11/yelp 
which is a runtime dependant. I simply installed evince and forcibly 
deleted yelp. It's only needed as a help browser so provided you don't 
use F1/Menu=>Help you'll be fine.

As for the original question, I don't have a suitable document to test 
it with. If you want to send one over, I can test it for you, but 
installing evince and trying it yourself is probably just as quick.
