I decided to go ahead and try it. In addition to build-essential and
cmake I had to install svn. But the script fails on:

	bash: svn://scribus.net/branches/Version14x/Scribus: No such
		file or directory

Actually, I was running it one line at a time in a terminal, but that
should not make any difference.
