After installing lcms you need icc profiles in the profiles directory.
On my system, which is the scribus default:
/usr/local/lib/scribus/profiles is where I have installed my profiles
(as root)

You should have at minimum, an RGB profile for you monitor, an RGB
profile for conversion and a CMYK profile for a printer. I highly
recommend installing these:
as a base set of profiles for using color management.

With this set of profiles, this should enable CMS in Scribus - otherwise
this preferences will not appear. 

Hope this helps,
