"Installing from source" in Fink means that you download the sources and 
compile them yourself (or rather, Fink does this for you). Of course,for 
compiling you need a compiler. So, yes, you need to install the 
developer tools from the Xcode CD.

OTOH, scribus-1.1.5 and all its required libraries exist in the binary 
distribution. Just choose the binary installation in FinkCommander, or 
at the command line say "sudo apt-get install scribus". Then no compiler 
is necessary, because the precompiled binaries will just be downloaded 
and installed. This assumes, of course, that your Fink installation and 
your package list are up-to-date.

Don't do this if you don't know what you are doing. Just install 
scribus, it will install all the prerequisites automatically.
