Hi Greg, (et al),

I followed the instructions on the wiki for 1.5.0 using the checked out svn
source. After installing a couple of extra libraries, cmake, QtWebKit, etc. I
managed to build Scribus-1.5.0  The process was moderately painless thanks to a
clean build process. Now I have the one-button "PDF X/1a:2001 export", every
end-user seeks :-)

Many thanks indeed!

ps. Given that Scribus is the only practical open-source DTP option, and LSI
are the most popular independent POD printers, and as frustrating as it might
be to cater to a wierd PDF format, I think you're going to find this question
come up over and over again.
