I took another read of andreas e-mail (below) and put that prefs field 
back the way it was (gs) and droped the ghostcript framework folder 
into my frameworks folder, this time not under user but the top level 
library>frameworks folder.

Launching Scribus in OS X no longer gives me the 'no ghostscript' 
warning, BUT when I import an eps into a picture box, I can neither see 
the graphic nor manipullate the pic. box (including deleting it).

the only raster format that comes in correctly w/respect to color is 
jpg, but I can import psd and tiff images.

Also, my tools work, but their icons don't change when they're selected.

I grabbed the latest Scribus (the one which expands to 141mb) and
noticed Ghostscript offered (Ghostscript-8.50-macosx.tar.bz2 (2.7 MB))

That's the framework? Drop install into /Library/Frameworks.

That's fink's ghostscript, not the framework.

Scribus and *still* I get the "No Ghostscript" warning.

The snapshot only finds the GS framework automatically. For other GSes 
you have to configure the binary in Scribus->Preferences.
