I'm running gnome 1.2, a complete install. It's not a question of not
having a particular library, it's specific versions that are required.

In general, I think (and certainly not only Balsa) that most Linux apps
are WAY too library-dependent. I don't understand why so many developers
use all these libraries instead of writing customized code, particularly
in places where the UI could be improved.
