I am trying to install Scribus 1.2.
The Packages window shows for scribus? Installed: none, Latest:   
1.2-11, Binary 1.1.5-11.
I had previously installed scribus 1.1.5 using the "Install" menu item  
of the Binary menu. This version worked fine.
I had trouble upgrading and so I have "removed" the old version.
I then selected scribus and chose "Install" from the Source menu.
Fink Commander returned as follows:
The following package will be installed or updated:
The following 8 additional packages will be installed:
  libjpeg libjpeg-bin qt3 qt3-designer qt3-doc qt3-linguist xfree86

WARNING: if you compile X11 applications against this XFree86 release,
you will *not* be able to run them if you decide to revert to Apple's
X11 provided with Panther.

You have an existing X11 installation in /usr/X11R6 and/or /etc/X11.
This package refuses to overwrite these. Remove them, then tell Fink to
install xfree86 again. (The package won't be recompiled.) If you want
to keep your X11 installation, install system-xfree86 resp.  
instead to make this known to Fink's package system.

Press Return to continue.

I don't think I want to install XFree86
and I don't understand how to install system-xfree86 resp. system-xtools
and how to make this known to Fink's package system.
Can I get help getting scribus 1.2 installed?
Using Fink is all new to me so it could be something quite basic that I  
do not understand. For instance, I noticed the Binary is still 1.1.5  
should I wait till it is 1.2? or can I just use the "Source" menu
