The main difference is that "aqua-intel-fink" is compiled on your
machine while "aqua-intel-native" is compiled on Andreas' machine and
then installed as a compiled binary by you.
More technical differences are:
1. "aqua-intel-fink" installs the required external libraries and
utilities like qt3/mac, ghostscript, lcms, libpng, freetype, fontconfig
etc. automatically under control of a package manager inside Fink's
controlled directory "/sw", whereas "aqua-intel-native" requires you to
download those manually and install them in the default directories such
as /Library/Frameworks and /usr/local/bin.
2. Since Andreas Vox is a Scribus developer and the Fink package
maintainer is only a packager, it is possible that Andreas' version
"aqua-intel-native" will have more bug fixes than the Fink version which
is compiled directly from the released sources with only very minimal
