This message must mean that cmake does not know the name of your C++
compiler. I have not looked at the Scribus build instructions, but shouldn't
your command be:

cmake . -G "Unix Makefiles"  -DCMAKE_INSTALL_...
to tell CMake to generate Unix Makefiles? However, if that does not
help, then try adding -DCMAKE_CXX_COMPILER=g++ to your
cmake command line. I assume that you do, in fact, have g++
on your system.

Try libpython-dev, or libpythonX.Y-dev for a specific version X.Y.
