The Restless Daemon identified a configure error while trying to build:
 balsa-2.4.2 maintained by
 Makefile ident: $FreeBSD: ports/mail/balsa/Makefile,v 1.141 2009/12/25 18:17:07 marcus Exp $

Excerpt from :

checking for langinfo.h... yes
checking whether we have gnome-keyring... yes
checking for BALSA... configure: error: Package requirements (
glib-2.0 >= 2.16.0
gtk+-2.0 >= 2.14.0
libgnome-2.0 libgnomeui-2.0 libbonobo-2.0 gconf-2.0 gnome-keyring-1
) were not met:

gnome-config: not found
No package 'gmime-2.4' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables BALSA_CFLAGS
and BALSA_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

===>  Script "configure" failed unexpectedly.
Please run the gnomelogalyzer, available from
"", which will diagnose the
problem and suggest a solution. If - and only if - the gnomelogalyzer cannot
solve the problem, report the build failure to the FreeBSD GNOME team at, and attach (a)
"/work/a/ports/mail/balsa/work/balsa-2.4.2/config.log", (b) the output of the
failed make command, and (c) the gnomelogalyzer output. Also, it might be a
good idea to provide an overview of all packages installed on your system
(i.e. an `ls /var/db/pkg`). Put your attachment up on any website,
copy-and-paste into, or use send-pr(1) with
the attachment. Try to avoid sending any attachments to the mailing list
(, because attachments sent to FreeBSD mailing lists are
usually discarded by the mailing list software.

Thanks for your work on making FreeBSD better,

QAT - your friendly neighborhood Daemon,
preparing  a heck of an error trapping system:
