[scribus] Good news, not so good news.

The good news is that I found that I can create
graphics for my latest project faster in Scribus
1.4.6 than in Inkscape. Perhaps it is because I
use Scribus more.

I have two pieces of bad news. First, my
overnight compile of 1.4.6 no longer works. It
is that ol' debbil Qt. Either the developers
have changed something or (more likely) I
changed something in an attempt to keep up with
1.5.0. I don't have time to debug it right now
so I will stick with the 1.4.6 I compiled on (I
think) Feb 22 but maybe earlier. 

The error message on my 1.4.6 compile is
[  4%] Building CXX object
/usr/local/src/s14x/scribus/scribusapp.cpp: In
member function 'void ScribusQApp::installTranslators(const QStringList&)':
error: 'QLibraryInfo' has not been declared
    if (transQt->load("qt_" + lang,

The other piece of bad news relates to 1.5.0. I
attempted to use the mesh distortion feature.
It went through the motions OK but no change was
made on the actual graphic. But on 1.4.6 it
works like a champ.
