What does this mean "includes"? Do they just mention it in some text or
do they include precompiled packages? They could very well include all
the necessary *.deb files, so that installing the SDKs and compilers
would not be necessary.
The Scribus entry on the CD results in placing on your Mac a folder
called Scribus-1.2, which contains uncompiled sources. It does not
*not* include the *.deb files. In order to do anything with it, you
must install the SDK as well, of course, as Fink (which creates the
tree structure and underlying libraries.)
I have no idea who did this, but I'm sorry about it. It would have
been better to see to fruition the current work on creating a
Mac-native Scribus, even though that would probably mean waiting
until 1.3.0 becomes stable.
I understand the problems with the 4.0 compiler and that was easy to
deal with. The fact that it couldn't then handle the qt-mt libs (and
omits jpeg support entirely) is more troubling.
Thanks as always for your work in making Scribus available on the Mac.
