Hello everybody,

balsa-2.5.1 has been released with a next batch of goodies:
- ported to GNetworkMonitor

That port was not quite seamless :(

Short version: if you have glib version 2.32 or better, and configure --with-nm (the default), and do not 
have the NetworkManager-glib devel package installed, configure will fail.

Workaround: configure --with-nm=no.

Fix: has been pushed to the gtk3 branch.

Long version: glib version 2.32 introduced GNetworkMonitor, which can be used in place of NetworkManager to, 
well, monitor the network status.  Balsa's code has been modified to detect that version of glib at compile 
time, and use GNetworkMonitor instead of NetworkManager, eliminating the need to link against the additional 
library.  The configure script was similarly modified to detect an adequate version of glib at configure 
time, and notify the user that NetworkManager, while requested, was not used.  But configure then wrongly 
checks that the -dev package is installed, when of course it should just move on.

With apologies for any inconvenience,
