Isn't this a simple question of permissions? If that script is to be 
executed, it should have permissions 755 and not 644 as it does in the 

OTOH, looking at the configure script, I don't see why that command is 
executed as you show it. Logically, configure should have set the 
MKDIR_P variable to something like "/bin/mkdir -p", but it didn't find 
this, so it took what it calls the "last resort, use the slow shell 
script". So maybe if you call configure with the parameter 
MKDIR_P="/bin/mkdir -p", it will work without chmod'ing admin/install-sh.

Disclaimer: I didn't test any of this, because I (as scribus maintainer 
for Fink), am building scribus with cmake, not with configure, and built exactly like before it, without problem.
