Maybe I misunderstand the question, but when I make a pdf of my work (a
newsletter) with an email address or a weblink in the text, they both
are clickable. When I check the "Embed PDF & EPS files" option in the
output to file window, even links in imported pdf images are clickable!

I use Scribus 1.3.5 and 1.5.0 on OpenSUSE 11.2_64bit.
