Specify the prefix.

It is important to note that setting the python dir will usually require
you to have LD_LIBRARY_PATH pointing to the right version of Python at
runtime, since Scribus dynamically links to Python. If they're different
major versions, this is fuss free, but if they're the same major version
(e.g. 2.3) then you must ensure that the correct one is _first_ in the
library search path. The path in LD_LIBRARY_PATH must be to the lib/
