Oh yes. You will eventually need gcc-3.x and a modern libqt3, which conflicts 
with the qt3 you use for woody qt apps (since it's a C++ library). At that 
point, you can as well use testing/unstable :-))

If you want to remain on stable, I'd recommend getting the gcc-3.x backport 
from Adrian Bunk, compiling libqt3 from trolltech with that compiler and then 
scribus with all the libs. Scribus needs some updated C libs which just need 
a compile.

This should eventually work (it did for me).

Good luck,

PS: there is hope that sarge will become stable in the not-too-distant 
future ;)
