Balsa Crashing when being launched.

Hi Folks,
I was trying to get balsa to run on my Solaris 2.7 machine and am facing
some problems. I am using Gnome version 1.4 and using version 1.2.9 of
gtk/glib libraries. I was sucessfull in building balsa but have not been
able to run it so far.

I am using .12.2 version of the Pspell libraries and the libtool which came
with pspell.

Following is the problem that I am seeing. When I try to start balsa by
typing balsa, this is what I see.

[dspsparc133 3 :~/balsa/bin]# ./balsa 

GnomeUI-WARNING **: Could not open help topics file NULL
Gdk-ERROR **: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  serial 4122 error_code 8 request_code 62 minor_code 0
[dspsparc133 4 :~/balsa/bin]# 

I do not have any environment variables set for pointing it to help file as
I assumed that --prefix would have taken care of that. Do I need to do that
as well ? Anyway I searched a bit on google on debugging GDK errors and
saw a message which asked to take a backtrace. I am not a software engineer
so I do not understand anything of what is happening here. But my guess is 
that it is aborting because it does not find the help file. Anyway here is 
the gdb backtrace. I will really appreciate it if someone can take a look 
at this and help me in getting this to run.
