I don't know if this is a Qt problem or not, but my overnight script is 
blowing up on line 6. See below:
rm -r  /usr/local/src/s150
cd /usr/local/src
svn co svn://scribus.net/trunk/Scribus s150
cd s150
cmake . -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/usr/local/scribus_svn 
 -DWANT_GRAPHICSMAGICK=1 2>/usr/local/foo
make install
cd scribus
rm /usr/local/bin/scrib5
ln scribus /usr/local/bin/scrib5
The line that is no longer recognized is:

Should I just delete this line?

My last working compile was dated on or about Sept 3. Every night I
back up the last compile and compile a fresh copy.
