First of all, two things which are a) it's alright to be a newbie and 
b) be prepared for GNOME dependency hell.

This said, it seems to me you are either missing gnome-libs on your 
system or they are misplaced. The configure script is looking for 
/usr/local/lib/gnome-config but it has no luck. If you do have 
gnome-config (it gets installed via gnome-libs) on your system, you can 
try to symlink it like 'ln -s /path/to/your/gnome-config 
/usr/local/bin/gnome-config'. Alternatively and probably more suited, 
seeing you are trying to build balsa from source in the first place, 
get 'gnome-libs' tarball from, and compile those. And 
this is where you prolly will go thru dependency hell... at least I 
did. has some good explanations about the dependencies 
and the way to install the different gnome-related libs/apps.

If you don't want to go this way, then debian's distupgrade might just 
be the way to go.
