According to lcms web page,  " SuSe does include liblcms<http://www.suse.com/>"
(http://www.littlecms.com/downloads.htm). If you cannot find it, you can get
the source code and compile/install it manually.

The packages you will need if you compile Scribus by yourself are the -devel
ones. For example for tiff support you will have to install libtiff-devel
prior to the ./configure && make steps. The same applies for other
libraries, like cups or freetype,...
