As Craig Ringer said,  this wouldnt be appropriate as a downloadable as part 
of the main Scribus package.

What we plan is a method for you do be able to grab fonts from distributions'

dialog when you dont have a font installed, and will allow network setups to 
have a common font dir to install from etc.
