On the Scribus mailing list, Andreas Vox has started an interesting discussion on bringing Scribus natively to Mac OSX. It turns out that Martin Costabel has also been working on this with his fink packages for Qt/Mac Scribus. Craig Ringer is also working on porting, and pushing changes into 1.3cvs as they're made suitable for inclusion.

** static path build works fine too
 
** CUPS (with fink <code>cups-devel</code> package or add-in CUPS headers; Apple doesn't ship the headers in 10.3)?
 
** Operation from a .app bundle . The bundle must be hand constructed, and library paths on the executable need manual fixing, so it's only halfway there. Still, it works.
 
** Support for Mac fonts, including old-style resource-fork fonts. Thanks, Andreas!
 
* Not working
 
** Automatic assembly of a working .app bundle. Andreas has scripts to do this now, though.
