I download each version overnight with a script. I aim the svn update 
at a differnt file in each case (/usr/local/src/s140 and 
/usr/local/src/s150). In each of my download scripts I copy the 
scribus file to /usr/local/bin/scrib4 or /usr/local/bin/scrib5 as 

Here are the latest versions of my scripts:
cd /usr/local/src/
svn up svn://scribus.net/branches/Version135/Scribus s140 
cd s140
cmake . -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/usr/local/scribus4_svn  
make install
cd scribus

cp /usr/local/bin/scrib4 /usr/local/bin/scrib4.sav
rm /usr/local/bin/scrib4
cp scribus /usr/local/bin/scrib4
cd /usr/local/src/
rm -r s150/*
svn co svn://scribus.net/trunk/Scribus s150
cd s150
cmake . -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/usr/local/scribus_svn 
make install
cd scribus
rm /usr/local/bin/scrib5
ln scribus /usr/local/bin/scrib5
These have some personal modifications but you get the general idea.
