The answer was hidden in (almost) plain sight. In
my /home/username directory is a subdirectory
called .scribus. I cleaned that out. Then I fired
up Scribus 1.5.0. Lacking guidance from
the .scribus subdirectory the program went out
and looked for fonts. It found them all. 

Ideally Scribus would search for fonts anew
every time it was started. Perhaps the creators
of Scribus could take that under consideration.
