Problems compiling from source

I'm probably being an idiot or something but I'm trying to compile logjam from source and I'm having problems (I was using the rpm version but I use RH8 not 9 and the .src.rpms caused me plentiful errors too). While running make it exits with the following error:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lpspell
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I have the latest version of gtkspell, and it always worked fine with the old rpms.

Anyone got a solution? Or alternatively, how do I stop it from automatically trying to install with gtkspell compatibilities? I'd rather have the spellchecker but I'm happy to go without if I can get it to run.

Thanks for any help. :)
