[Scribus] Solaris, Scribus, Fonts, & Core Dumps

I'm looking at using Scribus (v1.1.7) as a replacement for FrameMaker 
(the last commercial program I use).  I tried compiling it for the first 
time under Solaris 8 (on a sparc system).  It core dumps when searching 
for fonts (at least that's what the splash screen says when it goes).  
 From what I could find, it seems that something can cause it to crash 
when looking for fonts, but I haven't been able to find anything to tell 
me how to fix the problem (if indeed that's it).  I'm running under CDE 
(if that makes any kind of difference).  I have Type 1 and TrueType 
fonts in my X11 font path.  Any help or pointers are appreciated in 
advance.  Thanks in advance.
