 From "fink info scribus":

  Fonts: By default, the X11 Type1 fonts are recognized. If you
   want more fonts, you can do one or more of the following:
   - Install the x-ghostscript-fonts or msttcorefonts or xfonts-intl
     or applesystemfont packages.
     (The gimp-sharefonts and similar packages work, too,
     but these fonts are of rather bad quality)
   - Put lines like
     into your ~/.scribus/scribusfont.rc file (create it if it doesn't 
     This will give you many (not all) of the Apple system fonts.
     If you use FontBook to create your own collections, put also
     into this file.
    Not all font types are working: OpenType and Resource Fork TrueType
    don't work, but the latter can be converted using fondu.

In particular the applesystemfonts package brings you a large number of 
fonts, *all* of those in /System/Library/Fonts and /Library/Fonts, plus 
those of ~/Library/Fonts that are in ttf or dfonts format.
