Concerning the Fink packages, they are currently in the Fink 
distribution for MacOSX 10.5 and higher. I have only tested this on the 
intel architecture, not on 10.5/ppc, because I don't have a 
corresponding machine, but I don't know any reason why it shouldn't 
build on ppc.

For OSX 10.4 (which is no longer officially supported by Fink), the 
1.4.0 package is not yet there. I am testing it on a G5 under 10.4, and 
this will take some more time (qt4 is building since more than 7 hours 
and has not yet finished). If no obstacles show up, then there will soon 
be a Fink package for scribus-1.4.0 (both x11 and aqua variants) for 
MacOSX 10.4.

Note that these are not precompiled binaries, but packages that allow 
you to build scribus by typing a simple command like

  fink install scribus-aqua

and then wait until everything has finished.
