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.
