First and more probably easily :
Part of the job could be semi-automated
in tweaking an option into the export text scribus function,
so as to insert a user-defined string
in place of each page break.
That would easyen the job of exporting to a tex or ooo indexing tool.

Then, in a more full-featured and complex way, so as Scribus to be selfreliant :
scribus would require to enable to define and place index strings in places required,
maybe using a set of special styles (would be invisible)...
or rather : in typing these index in "post it" miniframes (a bit as comments
in a pdf doc, or html titles hint bubbles on links)

http://www.pdfindexgenerator.com demo VDO suggests however
that some indexes require hierarchical structure.
Not mine.
