apologies for quoting myself but i just solved this issue. i upgraded to
mdk 9.1 (xfree 4.3 and qt 3.1.1) and compiled the latest version of qt
(3.1.2) from sources. the problem was still there, except for the
absence of the error message, as T-MAN had said.

on mdk systems xinerama header files are in
/usr/X11R6/include/X11/extensions (i don't know whether this is where
it is normally installed) and scribus wasn't seeing the headers. once
you run:

./configure --with-xinerama

the headers are included and antialiasing, for the menus, is working
fine. running the latest cvs. thanks everybody.

regards, subash.
