```hi all. i'm compiling trunk version of scribus on windows.

please find attached the patch with changes i had to make in order to do that.

i changed install path so that it wouldn't contain spaces, which visual studio 2005 (or cmake generator for it) doesn't like.

also, i think it will be interesting for you that i got most of the dependencies from KDE-windows installer.
i had to remove FindTIFF.cmake and FindPNG.cmake from scribus/cmake/modules and replace FindLCMS.cmake with the one from KDE folder.
and used the following cmake command:
cmake ..  -DLIBPODOFO_SHARED=0 -DPREFIX_CAIRO=D:\Scribus\cairo

my intention is to write instructions for compiling using KDE installer on your wiki, beside from http://wiki.scribus.net/index.php/Building_Scribus_on_Windows
