I also prefer xpdf. And I packaged and maintain epdfview. I also packaged 
poppler and evince two and a half years ago.

I use different viewers as part of my work I have to submit PDFs for 
printing and like to be able to view in different viewers first.

Anyways, I don't even recall enabling or starting dbus ever on any 
pksgrc-based system and I have been using several versions of evince for a 
long time.
