I was speaking in general, not just about Scribus. In theory Mac, 
being based on BSD, should be as easy to do as Linux. But I see all 
these posts about the Mac version with reference to Open Source 
programs in general.

When I develop a trivial little app, like Tyro for indexing (written 
in Tcl/Tk) I can test it on my Linux partition and also my Windows XP 
partition. But I have no way to develop or test for Mac without 
investing big bucks in a machine just for that purpose. I see no ROI 
in that.
