Well, we build the GS 8.57 version especially for newbies like you so they
can get an easy installation on OSX - and you said you got that working
with Scribus. Users using Fink or MacPorts (which are two very un-Macintoshy 
packet managers) might get access to newer versions. The GS 8.60 binary
you tried was not built by the Scribus team and therefore doesn't
with Scribus.
So my recommendation as part of the Scribus Team is: use GS 8.57. You will
probably not notice the minor diffrence to GS 8.60 and there's no easy way
to get that working for you anyway.

Yes, we dont update our website very regularely, especially if the existing
information works for most users.
