The latest gcc packages in sarge are at 3.4.3 version and the current
unstable/testing have already diverged. Fortunately for you, sarge is not that
far behind and you can get my package to work on your system by a simple
package rebuild. Make sure that you have the deb-src lines for scribus
repositories uncommented and run the following commands:

The cool way (TM) - as root or set up sudo for yourself as a user:

apt-get install apt-build (answer questions about your CPU and stuff - see an
excellent document at

apt-build update

apt-build install scribus (or scribus-cvs)


A bit slower way - as root:

apt-get install devscripts build-essential fakeroot (minimal build environment)

apt-get source scribus-cvs (or scribus)

apt-get build-dep scribus-cvs (or scribus)

cd scribus.... or scribus-cvs... (at this moment these are
scribus-1.2.1+cvs20050620 and scribus-cvs-1.3+cvs20050629) 

debuild -us -uc

cd ..

dpkg -i scribus_.... or scribus-cvs_.... (at the moment these are
scribus_1.2.1+cvs20050620-2_i386.deb and

Voila - you have a scribus (1.2) or scribus-cvs (1.3) package built and
optimized for your system.

If you have any other debian-related Scribus questions feel free to ask them
at any time.
