Really? Does it find the libfltk library and the cups/cups.h and FL/Fl.H 
headers? I found that the xpp configure script is badly broken, it 
doesn't take --includedirs and other similar options into account.

It shows the real error somewhere on the first page, I suppose, which if 
it's the same as for me, is a message that it doesn't find some headers. Try

make CPPFLAGS+="-I/sw/include" LDFLAGS="-L/sw/lib -lfltk"

If you want to compile things that use fink-installed packages, you 
should read some fink docs at 

Another point: I hope you installed not the "fltk" package from fink, 
but one of "fltk-x11-42" or "fltk-x11-43".

Finally: Could you explain me why xpp is interesting, when we already 
have PrintCenter and the CUPS web interface on the Mac? If you convince 
me, I might make a fink package for it, so that future installations 
would be trivial.

All this has nothing to do with scribus, of cours, but since you started 
this thread on this list, we might as well finish it here.
