Well, the Fink project currently manages more than 5000 packages for 
MacOSX, but it has probably less resources than the Scribus team (I 
haven't yet seen any user come forward and spontaneously donate 100 
euros to Fink :-) ). So for the time being, precompiled binaries are 
only offered for the packages from the "stable" tree, to which 
scribus-aqua does not yet belong. The scribus versions and running under X11 do exist as precompiled binaries.
