Gentoo Linux currently has Balsa 2.4.8 as the only available version. I don't know what the build issues were with 2.4.9, but 2.4.10 and 2.4.11 fail to build with g-mime 2.6. The gentoo bug to bump the version of balsa is, and refers to the compile problem, logged as I have not tried building this myself yet. Gentoo has both 2.4 and 2.6 of gmime available as stable, but I suspect they will not accept a stable balsa requiring gmime 2.4 but not 2.6. Is there a known issue with gmime, or has it simply not been brought up yet?

There is a build issue: GMimeCypherContext is said to replaced with GMimeCryptoContext. Replacing all occurrences of the former one with the latter one should do the job - but I have not tried it myself!

I assume it would need to be wrapped in some sort of IFDEF based on whether you had 2.4 or 2.6. I won't have time to even look at it until early next week, and I'm not even sure I'm capable of doing it, but I'll give it a try if nobody else gets to it first.

Thanks for the response.
