After I upgraded, fink scribus-aqua no longer worked, so I uninstalled
and tried to re-install:
imac:~ eric$ fink install scribus-aqua

fink needs help picking an alternative to satisfy a virtual

It sounds like it's a fink package availability problem, but the
scribus-aqua package worked great for me on Tiger. When I list my
installed fink packages, I can see that my version of system-xfree86-
dev is lower than the install wants.
imac:~ eric$ fink list -i

After I upgraded and my scribus-aqua (and GIMP and Inkscape) didn't
work, I started fiddling with things, and installed some updated X11
libraries from Ben Byer. Did I maybe mess something up from the fink
perspective? I do notice now that there is a new Apple-distributed
version of X11 for Leopard. I'll have to try that out, too.
