there is a BUILDING_win32.txt file distributed with the source code... you may find some information in there...
if something does not work don't hesitate to ask in here or on #scribus at irc.freenode.net

on the the other side, it would be nice to have a first experimental .exe and .dmg for 1.5svn on sourceforge to allow more people to test the importing of XTG and IDML (compiling is much harder on windows and on os x... and most users won't have quark or ID for linux...)
