I don't know how much help this is, but in my pre-compiled version of 
Scribus (version 1.3.8) "libfreetype.6.dylib" is *inside* the Scribus 
application package.  At Scribus.app/Contents/Frameworks/libfreetype.6.dylib.

So for what you're trying to compile, I wonder why the executable is looking 
for an *external* file.

I'm trying to do "the same thing" that you are.  That is, get a working 
version of Scribus 1.4.0 for a PPC Macintosh.

MacPorts is grinding away building qt4-mac.  
When it finally finishes, I'll try building Scribus again.
