I've gotten a completely up-to-date build (see below), and adding pages 
still guarantees a Signal 11 crash. :-(  I wish I had more time to 
explore this. The crash doesn't even generate a core dump (or does Linux 
even do these very well, me being mostly a FreeBSD and Solaris man?).

Well, I'm an idiot (again). I had forgotten that I had logged out at one 
point, so my environment had lost the extended LD_LIBRARY_PATH setting I 
use only for compiling. With /usr/local/lib appended to the variable, 
the newest CVS of Scribus compiled like a dream. sigh  Why do I always 
forget the obvious?
