Here is a cookbook solution:

Here is my Slackware Linux script which runs nightly. Before running the 
script you need to have a directory /usr/local/src/s150.  
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
Note that I call Scribus 1.5.0 "scrib5" to avoid name conflicts.  The two 
lines commented out caused problems with cmake. 

I have a similar script for Scribus 1.4.0 etc. 

Have fun!
