when you saw this, there was no point in running make.
You may be missing gcc-c++
Here is what I have on my system:

gcc.i386                                 4.1.2-27.fc7           installed
gcc-c++.i386                             4.1.2-27.fc7           installed
gcc-gfortran.i386                        4.1.2-27.fc7           installed

It's fedora 7, but I think you need all 3 for Scribus to compile.

your cmake needs to be 2.4.3 or better also.
