From my reading of monster.txt, "too close" is 20 tiles, the awareness range of said reavers.
I agree. I don't consider myself to be that good a player, but graveyards have never made me skip the level. if I'm feeling weak and the graveyard particularly strong, I'll just avoid it, otherwise I'll often make a plan to try to deal with it. I try and approach from the right side, pull out a few creatures at a time. get the pass-wall types out (arch-liches I often find very hard work). try not to annoy the reavers too much, pelt the inside with ball spells for the druj's etcetc.

a graveyard is a scary thing, and typically the focus of the level, but it's not an instant "run away" affair.
