In the external tools preferences, did you put the full path for
ghostscript, "/sw/bin/gs", or just the basename "gs"?
The latter will only work if your Scribus.app is started with a decent
PATH environment variable which is not the case by default. One
possibility to define this environment is to create or modify the file
(file environment.plist in the folder .MacOSX in your home directory)
and put lines like
inside. On the next login, this will modify Finder's environment and by
heritage, also the one of Scribus.app. It will then be sufficient to
write "gs" (without quotes) into the preferences line.
Mutatis mutandis, this will work for the case of a framework-based gs, too.
