Evolution is a huge package with lots of major dependencies.  Its saving
grace is it works well.  'fraid your going to have to bite the bullet.

In earlier (pre 0.2 up to ~1.4) days I used to manually compile
evolution from source and build rpm's for Mandrake and redhat - not for
the faint hearted at all.  red-carpet was ok, but wanted to pull in
other stuff not related, and gave me major problems at times - though
this was a long time back now! 

If apt works, use that as it seems the best of the binary installers
(after gentoo's emerge) by reputation at least.

evo 1.2 is primitive and buggy, go with at least 2.02, and do a binary
install and accept that its going to fill up a your hard drive, even in
binary form.
