There is one other possibility if you insist on staying with Fink's 
stable tree (except for scribus):

d. Copy the 3 files

qt3mac.info, qt3mac.patch and scribus-aqua.info

from the unstable tree, that is, from the directories 
/sw/fink/dists/unstable/main/finkinfo/graphics/ and
to the directory
(Make sure the latter directory exists and you have write access)

Then just run "fink install scribus-aqua".

This method will not perturb your other Fink packages, because neither 
qt3mac nor scribus-aqua exist in the stable tree. You will get some 
packages with older versions than if you chose the unstable tree, for 
example ghostscript-8.51 instead of 8.54, but otherwise this seems to work.
