Hi John,

It is possible that something has got out of kilter.  Can you start your  version of Scribus from the command line, invoke an error and then look at your console and advise the output from the failure. 

Also, I have never understood why you go and download the whole repository for each build. Why don't you do what everyone else does, 

 1. Get the base repository ( See https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Building_SVN_versions_with_CMake )

 2. Build it

 3. And then on after, do a # svn up followed by a # make install   (The link above is *really* worth following )
