in 1.3.5+ (and if your copy of scribus has been compiled against
libpodofo; afaik this is true for os x, windows and our own debian
packages) you can link the pdfs to an image frame and tell scribus to
embed them when exporting to pdf.

this is an experimental feature but, afaik, recently there was some work
on some color management related issues to make it less experimental.
(basically the status is: the embedding normally works but scribus
won't check the color profiles and other important details yet).

hope that helps
