There were a couple of issues with getting 1.3.3 compiled properly on 
OSX. It is now available at http://aqua.scribus.net

If you follow those instructions precisely on installing Ghostscript 
it should work fine on OSX. Ghostscript adds a lot of functionality 
to Scribus like having a real postscript preview for printing and EPS
