This is why the process is so mind bogglingly obnoxious the times in the
past when I've had an Evolution bug.

Can you build just Evolution from source on the distribution you're
using? In the past I couldn't.

FYI, with Arch Linux building evolution from source is very easy, and
doesn't require rebuilding GNOME or any runtime gymnastics.  This was a
design goal of the package management system, but also it's helped by
Arch's rolling-release model, which means libraries are kept up-to-date.
I wouldn't want to try to build evolution 3.12 on an Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
system, or an Arch system that hadn't been updated in years either.
