Well its not a problem with Balsa, its a problem in your system
configuration. For example, I guess you are using RH. Now in RH,
/usr/local/bin and /usr/local/lib, both aren't included in the default
paths (I'm sure about the /usr/local/lib, but I think /usr/local/bin is).
So thats why it can't run it. 
To add /usr/local/bin to your default path, just append it to your
environment variable, PATH. I believe you do know how to do that.
To add /usr/local/lib to you default lib path, do it by adding it to your
/etc/ and type ldconfig as root. Then it'll be added to your
default library path.

I Think that should be enough.
