If recompiling with a newer version of libgal causes an incompatibility
in libgtkhtml20 (I don't know whether it does or not), then its soname
and package name must be changed, so evolution will continue to work
when linked against the library from the old libgtkhtml package. If it
doesn't cause an incompatibility, then the situation you describe is not
a problem.
