I don't see that option under Evince, yep. 

But maybe you can give Evince a chance by creating a new printer instance 
in cups (name it, "evince_fiplot_on") and enable "fitplot" option for 
that printer in "/etc/cups/printers.conf" (Option fitplot true) :-?

IIRC, Xpdf can pass raw lpr parameters when printing, so maybe it could 
be another option.
