In which case if you specified no prefix to cmake / configure, Scribus
will have installed in the /usr/local tree (/usr/local/bin,
/usr/local/share/scribus, etc). A `find /usr/local -name \*scribus\*'
should find most if not all files and directories installed by Scribus.

Because no unified system is tracking "ownership" of the installed
files, any such script would have too much risk of removing other things
by accident. That's not OK, so we leave it up to the user.

If you want it easily removed, just use a unique prefix at installation
time so there's just one directory you can rm -rf . This is described in
the install instructions.
