I would also be interested in a pre-compiled Scribus for Solaris (I'm running 
Solaris 8).  I managed to compile it myself (including the Qt libraries), but it 
core dumps when trying to deal with the OpenWindows PS fonts.  Checking with a 
pre-compiled version will tell me if I did something wrong.
