Yes.. certainly possible.

For installation my suggestion would be to make yourself a directory under 
your home directory, or under /opt for example. When building follow a 
command sequence like:

export CFLAGS="-march=pentium4 -O2 -pipe"
export CXXFLAGS="-march=pentium4 -O2 -pipe"
export WANT_AUTOCONF=2.5
export WANT_AUTOMAKE=1.9
make -f Makefile.cvs
./configure --prefix=/opt/scribus13x --enable-debug
make && make install

The 1st two arent necessary, and are dependent on your system spec.
The 2nd two are possibly not necessary depending on the autoconf/automakes on 
your system. Setting automake for 1.9 should work fine, as should 1.7, etc.

The prefix is where the program will be configured and installed for. This is 
how you can have multiple installations at the same time.

The enable debug flag will allow us to better track crashes etc when run under 
gdb. We would appreciate if you used this if you dont mind the larger binary 

Preferences are not shared between 1.2 and 1.3. On first startup 1.3 will 
optionally create preferences based on your 1.2 ones, or start from a new
