For the French, I think you can either set the environment variable
LANG=fr_CA or start it with "scribus -lang fr". For the CVS, you cannot
get this automatically with Fink, you need to do some manual work for it.

There are instructions somewhere on how to install the CVS version on
top of Fink. I don't know if they are already published on the web or
will be published soon. They date from before the 1.2RC1 release, but I
think they are still valid. If they are nowhere to be found, I can send
you a copy privately.

These instructions use the standard installation procedure of Scribus
CVS, so they install into /usr/local and don't interfere with the
version installed from a Fink package. You can have both at the same time.
