Scribus-1.5.3 is the directory that you have told cmake to put the
executable 'scribus' inside. If you don't already have such a directory,
make will create it when it compiles.

Personally, I just stick with my simple, non-script method, which goes
something like:

svn co svn://scribus.net/trunk/Scribus scribus15
cd scribus15
cmake -CDMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=~/Scribus-1.5.3
make install

I've never created a build directory (mkdir build). I also create an
alias in my .bashrc so instead of typing out 'cmake blah blah blah', I
just have my 'cmake15x' command as a shortcut.

I also from years of experience have just used 'make install' instead of
'make' , then 'make install' (traditionally, you might do this on one
line with 'make && make install'), since realistically, the first thing
that 'make install' does is check to make sure that the whole package is
built, and if it is, it installs.
