[Scribus] More info--Scribus building on OS X

I copied the latest snapshot of arts from KDE cvs, ran the patch, did 
the makefile-cvs, and then copied the admin directory to my Scribus 

I then get this:

checking for strip... strip
admin/ltconfig: admin/ltconfig: No such file or directory
configure: error: libtool configure failed
[Kevin-Walzers-Computer:~/Desktop/scribus-1.1.4] kevinwal%

I've run into this problem before, which is why I started trying to 
build using qmake directly. Any ideas?
