Frankly, I'm astonished Scribus compiles without libtiff these days. I
think it should probably be made a mandatory dependency to avoid these
sorts of issues - it's a common, easy to obtain library that's
preinstalled on most systems anyway. A mandatory dependency will mostly
just ensure the -dev / -devel package is installed.

As for what you are missing and what to do about the problem, please
read the documentation, specifically the file BUILDING in the Scribus
source tree you downloaded. Make sure you have ALL the packages required
for your distro installed.
