You've omitted some important information:
	- Distro
	- Distro version
	- Qt version
	- CMake version
	- The full output from CMake

It'll default to building in the current directory, wherever that is 
when you run cmake.

That permits multiple builds to be maintained from the same code, eg if 
I had the directories:


I could cd into "scribus-i386-debug" and run
"cmake ../scribus-src -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=debug"
to get a debug build, without having to make copies of the source in 
each build directory, keep it up to date, etc.

Makefile.cvs / Makefile.svn were part of the autotools build framework, 
which haves been removed from 1.3.5 in favour of CMake.
