Other than from macosxhints, you will get more answers and more 
competent ones from the Fink mailing lists 
You might also want to have a look at the Fink FAQ at

You are trying to build software (and a lot of it, it seems, all of qt3 
at least) from source, but you don't seem to have the necessary tools 
(compiler) installed. You can either choose to install scribus and its 
prerequisites from precompiled binaries available in Fink or, if you 
want to continue what you started to do, install these tools first. You 
have them on your system CD and you can download them from Apple, too. 
Type "fink info cctools" at the command line to get some further
