here you probably only see the binary packages. you will have to find the parameters which you also show the source based ones (or use fink-commander, which you said you have installed, and it will show you both versions).

you don't need anything except fink (and maybe x code). it will pull all the dependencies automatically.

if you want some further help, you may come to the #scribus irc channel on irc.freenode.net at office hours CET (9:00-16:00 to be sure; excluding midday)... if you're patient enough and can wait for me having some time, i can help you debug this.
