I don't know the url for any guide, there must be one somewhere though
but to add contacts syncing with syncevolution all you should have to do is:
Start up syncevolution
Sync services menu > Add new service
Press Next and type in "contacts" as the service name. (you can actually put anything you like in here)
Choose Google Contacts as the template, press Next
Put your gmail email address in Account, and gmail password in Password, press Next
Leave Contacts database as 'contacts', press Next
Then Finish. You should now be able to click the contacts on the list of services and press Synchronize.
edit: I have syncevolution version 1.3+20120925 from extras-devel, if you are having problems it may be because you have an older version. You can check your version by running syncevolution --version in a terminal.
