You can have a look at this forum topic http://forums.scribus.net/index.php?topic=615.0 for some advice. (More specifically, see utnik's answers, and ignore my own mad rantings at the end.)

But are you sure you really need PDF/X-3? It might be worth checking with your printer to see if there would be any problems or other issues with using PDF 1.4 instead. It might save a lot of work just to check first.

I'm afraid to output as pdf-x3 need icc profile (requirements of the standard pdfx-3), but Scribus supports gray icc profile only for bitmaps when they have embed gray icc profile.
