Consider using other compiling methods, such as Cygwin. I have
not used it on Scribus sources but it works fine for e.g. Open Cobol.

And rather than investing 30 hours I suggest that a small Linux
partition would work more easily. I used to keep a partition with
an obsolete version of Slackware Linux just to get to Quanta
Plus, a graphical web page creator. You could use a similar
partition just for Scribus 1.5.0.
