evince build as prerequisite to Denemo compile

Just an update that I have now fixed this issue solely by updating the
MacPorts version of evince to a newer release from upstream; I submitted a
pull request on github to that effect.

Once I had evince, the latest Denemo (2.4.0) compiled and ran successfully
from their distributed source.

Provided that Denemo proves as useful as I hope, I plan to work on updating
that port, as well, now that I have learned a little bit about how MacPorts
works under the hood.
