Here is how I handle CVS repositories:

1) I have a root CVS directory in ~/cvs

2) Then I have ~/cvs/Scribus ~/cvs/inkscape and so on

3) After updating Run make -f Makefile dist from  ~/cvs/Scribus

In this case, it looks like you might have had a partial download or
something messed with CVS. In this case, delete the whole directory and
do a fresh checkout, as if you were doing it the first time.

Hope that helps,
