Eventually upgraded.  What I seemed to have to do (?) was to delete my 
old Scribus directory when I hooked up with CVS -- I tried just updating 
the old directory and got horrendous messages about aclocal when I tried 
'make -f Makefile.dist'.  After I deleted Scribus and started all over 
again, it worked. (Using FC2 by the way).

Now I have to see if this whole Copy of Copy of problem is gone.
