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.
