Do you have cups installed, probably need the development files as
well but just try cups first. (Well that's how I'd read the error

See the file BUILDING in the source
Install the below packages BEFORE running CMake or compiling Scribus:

        Qt >= 4.4.0 (Scribus has specific code requiring Qt 4.4, not
Qt 4.3.x or before)
        Freetype >= 2.1.7 (2.3.x strongly recommended)
        cairo >= 1.4.x
        libtiff >= 3.6.0
        LittleCMS (liblcms) = 1.12 (1.15+ recommended)
        libjpeg (depending on how Qt is packaged)

        Fontconfig >= 2.0
        LibXML2 >= 2.6.0
        GhostScript >= 8.0 (8.6+ or greater preferred)
        Python >= 2.3
        tkinter for the font sampler script
        python-imaging for the font sampler preview
        pkgconfig (to assist finding other libraries)
        apspell for the spell checker
        podofo - 0.5.0+ for enhanced Illustrator AI/EPS import, svn
        boost and boost-devel
