3.10.4 runs on OpenBSD likely after patching though I don't see any
patches to evolution itself in their ports tree. I think Antonio patched
OpenBSD's sndio in for pulseaudio for gnome 3. You could look into that.

I do see a configure arg --with-sub-version="OpenBSD Ports" so maybe
the patches were accepted upstream.
