Well if cmake replaces 
make -f Makefile.svn 
what then is the error in my script?  But forget about the script for 
the moment. 

Apparently there is some magic in specifying the path for cmake.  I 
tried the current directory (dot) and at the end of the process 
Scribus failed spectacularly.   I am willing to learn, but I need 
some more guidance. What addy can/should go on the end of the cmake 
command?   That is the only variable that I can see. And I don't much 
care whereinhell it goes, so long as it runs afterwards.  If there is 
a location that works please share it.  

I run slackware 12, which is about as plain vanilla as you can get.
