You'll want --prefix=/some/dir/other/than/other/scribus/installations
cause otherwise their plugins and all other resources will get mixed.

And next time some other random person installs scribus with the new default 
and that default already has another scribus version installed should we then 
again change the default? And /usr/local is something like a standard for 
your default prefix. Any app you build with autotools will default to that 
dir unless some other prefix are given during the configure.
