this was a spurious observation on my part - the links from source pdfs
do not involved libevince handling a signal, unlike those from Print

I've just noticed that this thread has been left hanging, sorry. I
installed libevince-dev and the links from Print View were broken.
So the fix at the moment is to build against libatril-dev.
Unfortunately Denemo's configure file doesn't give an option to force
the build to use libatril, it will only use it if libevince is absent,
so that has to be uninstalled before building.
