Besides the profiles, one would probably also have to decide how to 
choose the "Rendering Intents"? Not that I understand what this is...

There is a doc on the scribus web site, but it is partly outdated for 
1.2.2cvs. The fastest way to get scribus-CVS on the Mac is the following:

1. Install Apple's X11 (two packages, X11User.pkg from the system disk 
and X11SDK.pkg from the developer tools disk, the names may be slightly 
different). Also make sure that the Xcode developer tools are completely 
2. Install Fink using the Fink-0.7.1-Installer.dmg from
3. Enable the "unstable tree" as it is explained in
    then run
      fink selfupdate-rsync
      fink install scribus
    Either let it finish, which will give you scribus-1.2.1 in 
/sw/{bin,lib}, or stop it when it starts building scribus, after all the 
prerequisites are installed. Note that this can take some time, because 
heavyweights like qt3 are being compiled.
4. Checkout Scribus from cvs and apply your patch.
5. Run the attached little shell script scribus-cvs.sh that does the 
remaining necessary patching and runs configure and make in the right 
6. Run sudo make install, which will put scribus into /usr/local/{bin,lib}
