One question is what you are trying to do with this syntax. I can see
you want the installation to go to this PATH, but what is this
'../scribus'? You don't want to point to this directory with cmake, AFAIK.
If you look back a few threads in the ML archives, you can find some
specific suggestions that Craig made for the syntax of setting up an
install directory and also a separate build directory.
