[scribus] Blend function

I would like to blend one photo into another using the blend function. 
The description of how this could be done is not included in the 
Scribus manual.

Also, I have been able to find the blend function only on 1.3.5 rc1. 
There is a direction in the source file for to 
use --enable-cairo when running ./configure but this is obsolete 
since ./configure is not included in the distribution. I installed 
cairo and ran
cmake --enable-cairo .
but that did not create a usable binary, or indeed any binary at all.

I downloaded the executable for Win XP in that partition but that did 
not have the blend function either. 

If the blend function cannot be used to blend two photos together 
along an edge then the whole question is moot. I have to use Gimp.  
But I am curious about why it is so difficult to find it in any 
stable version of blend on Scribus.
