missing piece for evince?

On one of my machines, evince can open (most) pdf files without any

I assume I'm missing some file mapping extensions to filetypes.  I have
no idea which, and ktrace wasn't particularly helpful.  I have no idea

but not on others.  (Note that none of the three run Gnome.)  The
working machine is amd64-current; the other two are i386-current.
