Hey John,
I saw your script and I have a suggestion for you:
You don't need to delete and re-download everything each time you update 
the source.
Simply use "make clean". So it won't be needed to set up again cmake 
commands or
delete installed files.

I usually use those commands after the first setup:

cd /path/to/Scribus/source
svn up
cd build
make clean && make -j(n° of cores/threads) && make install
