Of course, if you have Fink already installed, or if you like to watch 
scribus building without going through any instructions, of if you put 
some value in having the sources of what you are installing, or if you 
want the advantages of X11, or if you just want to have the comfort of a 
package manager, there is still the Fink package. With Fink, you simply say

   fink install scribus
(for the X11 version), or

   fink install scribus-aqua

and then sit back and wait until it has finished building and installing.
