On most distros, you just need to install the appropriate Python 
develpment package. Information about several common distros is provided 
in the BUILDING file shipped with Scribus 1.3.x .

Try, as appropriate for your distro:

Fedora / Red Hat: yum install python-devel
Mandrake:         urpmi python-devel
SuSE:             use YaST to install python-devel
Debian/Ubuntu:    apt-get install python2.3-dev
                   (or python2.4-dev if you prefer)

Any chance you can file a bug on bugs.scribus.net with the problematic 
PostScript file attached? Please also run scribus from a terminal, and 
provide the output it prints there.
