Well, I was a bit confused.

Actually, "make install" installed to /usr/local/scribus_cvs but I
forgot that.

Now I was able to produce a nicely looking CMYK PDF. Only my printer
cannot print it nicely anymore - I've got no ICC profile for it; I
suppose, they just built in a pretty good RGB->CMYK profile, therefore
it printed RGB PDFs very well.

I'll see what the print shop says...

Thank you for the patch an everything!

Bye, Tino.
