It's also possible that this was an issue caused by
placing a PDF in the Scribus document.  The embedded PDF
did not have any fonts embedded and it looks like all
of the fonts which were not embedded were used in the
embedded PDF.

Sounds like Scribus needs to look at an embedded PDF
and copy any fonts used to the document fonts list.
