There's a Debianized scribus package for unstable.  Perhaps you
can use that to fetch the dependencies necessary for a successful
Debian build ("Build-Depends"):

Package: scribus
Binary: scribus
Version: 1.1.4-1
Priority: optional
Section: graphics
Maintainer: Wolfgang Sourdeau <was at debian.org>
Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 4.0.0), c++-compiler, gettext,
xlibs-dev, xutils, libjpeg-dev, libpng3-dev, libz-dev,
liblcms1-dev (>= 1.09), libtiff3g-dev, libqt3-compat-headers (>=
3.1.1), libqt3-mt-dev (>= 3.1.1), python2.3-dev, libart-2.0-dev,

The "libz-dev" package is a virtual package that points to (at
least on my Testing system) zlib1g-dev.  The command for getting
the build-depends is "apt-get build-dep <package-name>".
