It may be possible to solve this problem by using package.mask to
prevent one of those packages from being selected. However, it is also
possible that conflicting dependencies exist such that they are
impossible to satisfy simultaneously. If such a conflict exists in the
dependencies of two different packages, then those packages can not be

The following dependency of evolution-2.8.3-r1 is triggering this problem:
|| ( =app-crypt/gnupg-1.4* >=app-crypt/gnupg-2.0.1-r2 )
As a workaround:
echo "<app-crypt/gnupg-2.0.1-r2" >> /etc/portage/package.mask

I've converted that to || ( >=app-crypt/gnupg-2.0.1-r2 =app-crypt/gnupg-1.4* ) in order to avoid triggering this issue.
This bug is nearly identical to bug 159360. In cases like this where multiple choices intersect the same slot, the resolver needs to automatically prefer the choice with the highest version.
This is fixed in svn r6266:r6270.
