This solves it, I think. Yes, I build it myself on my amd64 kubuntu 
dapper, Scribus

But BUILDING says:
         Qt >= 3.3 (3.3.3 recommended)
         Freetype >= 2.1.3 (2.1.9+ recommended)
         libart >= 2.3.8+ (2.3.17+ recommended)

         libtiff >= 3.6.0
         Fontconfig >= 2.0
         LittleCMS = 1.12 (1.14+ recommended)
         LibXML2 >= 2.6.0
         GhostScript >= 8.0 (8.15 or greater preferred)
         Python >= 2.3
         tkinter for the font sampler script
         python-imaging for the font sampler preview

And I aslo ran into troble because of other -dev packages that has to be 
installed before compilation.
Berhaps those alle should be stated in this place too, not all would 
think of that (or know the exact names of those packages :-).

I will try so later, perhaps over the night, it takes hours :-P
