Here's the ebuilds that pull in evolution:

Since Gnome is the one pulling in evolution and since Gnome-light doesn't, I
would suggest you emerge -uDNav world, then emerge --depclean --ask then
revdep-rebuild to make sure that the later emerge --depclean shows only the
difference. If there are any packages in emerge --depclean that you want to
keep, emerge --noreplace them.
Then emerge -C gnome&&emerge gnome-light. emerge --depclean --pretend will
then show you the difference between the two gnomes. Note the packages you
want to *keep*. Then emerge --noreplace them to re-add them to your world
file. When you're done, evolution and any other packages you want to get rid
of should be the only packages shown in emerge --depclean --ask. Answer y.
