Thanks Patrick.

I had to use the --prefix /usr switch inorder to get scribus to compile. 
Running /usr/bin/scribus start 1.1.0.

I'd like to take this time to thanks every one who helped me get this 
going. It was well worth the effort. My biggest compliant was that the 
font rendering was to poor for my work. I can finally see what I'm doing 
and really start moving my work away from Quark into Open Source software.
