If you look at the lines in the Wiki
(http://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Building_SVN_versions_with_CMake) and
try those (modified for 1.4.3):

mkdir ~/src/
mkdir ~/src/scribus_svn
sudo mkdir /usr/local/scribus_svn
cd ~/src/scribus_svn
svn co svn://scribus.net/branches/Version14x/Scribus
cd ./Scribus
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/usr/local/scribus_svn ..
sudo make install

Do they work? It also seems like the folder which the INSTALL_PREFIX
points to must be created beforehand (which John's script doesn't do,
but the one in the Wiki does).

Also note what you have to do as SU and not.

Best regards,
