I had this problem too until I ungraded autoconf to version 2.57. Even after 
ungrading, "make -f Makefile.dist" still failed with errors like:

scribus/Makefile.am:167: invalid unused variable name: `AM_LDFLAGS'
scribus/libabout/Makefile.am:15: invalid unused variable name: `AM_LDFLAGS'
scribus/libprefs/Makefile.am:15: invalid unused variable name: `AM_LDFLAGS'
scribus/plugins/libchar/Makefile.am:16: invalid unused variable name: 

Fixed by commenting this line:


in a whole bunch of Makefile.am's.  After doing this, Scribus compiled fine 
and runs great.

Good work, BTW, getting cvs going. It's great fun watching Scribus mature 
before my eyes. I wish I was enough of a programer to help.
