currently running OSX tiger 10.4.11 PPC, 1.2ghz 1.25gig
i was using i think (i deleted and emptied bin), and  
downloaded 1.3.5svn from site, and installed etc..

started up, and said Ghostscript was not found, did a quick check,  
and set it up by linking the right folder etc, not sure why it didnt  
find it, but its in library\framworks\ghostscript as it should be,  
and im running 8.57 (according to the folder) & about in scribus itself

firstly, is this uptodate enough to be running current SVN? 18th feb  
on about info..

secondly, im sure i got the last copy of ghostscript from the scribus  
site (or a link), but cant find reference to it now for the mac for  
downloading? or do you now have to install via Fink? or ports? etc?

i believe the current version to be 8.63? and can be installed via  
fink, found from another website.

just wondering why this information to be possibly ommitted from the  
site? as any new user would be given this error/warning when starting  
up? well for OSX in particular, as in the installation documentation  
there is no reference to GS, im not sure who is the ultimate  
maintainer of the site, just trying to help :)
