[scribus] on Fedora 9 - success

Some observations:

1. On retry, after verifying that I did also have qt-3.3 installed, would compile on Fedora 9. It took an inordinately long time 
for it to get started, but eventually did make it. Seemed that the 
startup was the slowest.
2. For whatever reason, it used an inordinate amount of system 
resources. Perhaps the first time I tried, I may have been doing too 
many other things. This was not the case in Fedora 8, since I had gotten 
used to doing various other things. This is a P4 with about 512MB RAM 
and 1GB of swap. I even found tonight that just trying to click a link 
in firefox caused a system freeze -- perhaps firefox 3 (beta 5) is using 
a lot more resources.
