A remark re supporting libs: The currently released version 2.2.1 of 
freetype2 has a bug on MacOSX/Intel that makes Scribus crash while 
scanning fonts at startup. One needs a patch from freetype2 CVS (for 
freetype2, not for scribus), which is what the current Fink package is 
doing. With this, both scribus- (for X11) and 
scribus-aqua- from Fink seem to be working OK.
