the last command should be 'make install'

Not quite right. This would try to create a symbolic link with the name 
'bin'. Should be

ln -s /opt/scribus13312/bin/scribus /usr/local/bin/scribus

Also, don't forget the value of creating aliases in Linux. For example, 
since I use bash for CLI, I have created 2 aliases in .bashrc:

alias cmake133x='cmake . 
alias cmake135='cmake . -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/home/gregp/scribus135'

which allow me to just enter cmake133x or cmake135 in konsole. 
Especially when you're updating from svn a lot, this is a big timesaver 
and avoids typos.
