Build fails without 'gnome-doc-utils' as eugen-b has already posted.

@kpbochenek $ rm -r pkg/ src/ && makepkg -cirs

patching file backend/tiff/tiff2ps.c
mv: './' i './' to ten sam plik
==> BŁĄD: Wystąpił błąd w build().

Fails to build, it says it is the same file.
(I had previously installed evince2-light but I don't think this is related.

Add gnome-doc-utils to build dependencies.
The lines in build()

# rename all to [eE]vince2 to prevent conflicts with evince gtk3
_f=`find . -name "*[eE]vince*"`
for _l in $_f; do
mv $_l `echo $_l | sed "s|\([eE]\)\(vince2\{0,1\}\)|\1vince2|g"`
sed -i "s|\([eE]\)\(vince2\{0,1\}\)|\1vince2|g" `grep -rl "[eE]vince" .`

bring an error that the name evince2 is already there or like that. I've just commented them and the build worked.

Look here:
for a PKGBUILD and fixups.patch file that fixes the build errors.

Package doesn't build, seems to require automake <1.14:

checking for automake >= 1.10...
testing automake-1.13... not found.
testing automake-1.12... not found.
testing automake-1.11... not found.

***Error***: You must have automake >= 1.10 installed

Please include following patch: The patch adds grab&drag mode (useful for tablets). It is by Stephen Sugden from here: I just made it work with the current release of Evince 2.32.0.
