Ah! Now I see better how to use svn <slaps head>.

OK, the main instructions on the above page are:

	mkdir ~/src/
	mkdir ~/src/scribus_svn
	sudo mkdir /usr/local/scribus_svn
	cd ~/src/scribus_svn
	svn co svn://scribus.net/trunk/Scribus
	cd ./Scribus
	cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/usr/local/scribus_svn
	sudo "make install"

So at what point do I put in WANT_VERSIONING=1 so it doesn't mess up my
1.3.9? Or is "=1" the correct way to do this?

Also, how do I tell svn which version to fetch? I want the latest
1.5.0. Doesn't that have to be on the svn line somewhere? What if I
wanted to build the 1.4.0 RC5?

And finally, how would one uninstall it? Just use yum erase? How would
yum erase know which version to uninstall?
