1.2.3-1001 is in fact the one that is still available in the bindist, 
despite its old age (as old as MacOSX 10.4, but for some reason people 
seem to expect that they can run new software on old operating systems).

or rather: ...to understand and accomplish these commands without problem.

Unfortunately, in Lars' case it turned out that the situation was worse. 
His Scribus- was installed in 2009 not from Fink, but from the 
dmg provided by on the Scribus web site. Bringing Fink up to date, or 
even installing the developer tools necessary for building the latest 
scribus with fink, turned out to be too complicated for him. So he is 
still hoping that someone will provide a precompiled and packaged 
scribus dmg for MacOSX 10.4/ppc.
