Its not bad news.. its life. Fink and Macports have deprecated Tiger support along with many other
packages. Many have also dumped Leopard support or are close to doing so.

Its not to say Scribus doesn't run on Tiger, but we won't spend any time on testing it anymore. If
you install the old fink package and upgrade it, and install all of the packages required for
Scribus, you can build either the fink based Scribus package or the svn source. Don't tell me it
doesn't run.. because my old tiger build machine is sitting here and it does work.
