using Genlang local version

I have tried to contact GenLang authors last week, and since I have no 
answer, I try to find some help here. Basically the problem is how to
run Genlang local version, provided we have all the system software (as
a Prolog interpreter). There is a graphical interface, but the documentation
seems too old, for the instruction to launch it is wrong.

If someone could help, it would be very much appreciated!

Everything is detailed below:
We have installed genlang on a DEC alpha server. 
We have SICstus prolog 3 installed :
SICStus 3  #5: Wed Oct 15 08:23:23 MET DST 1997

After loading genlang module, we have problem loading the graphical interface:

| ?- use_module(genlang).
                    GenLang Version 2.5

{compiled /local/gensoft/packages/genlang/genlang.pl in module genlang, 285 msec 835776 bytes}

| ?- genlang_flag(graphical_display,_,on).
{EXISTENCE ERROR: turn_on_graphical_display: procedure genlang:turn_on_graphical_display/0 does not exist}

Maybe the postscript manual file is too old (Jul 7 1994), and the command 
genlang_flag(graphical_display,_,on) isn't the appropiate one?
