You need to install the basic development tools: sudo apt-get install

But, more importantly, why recompile scribus from source when it's
already available for Ubuntu? Did you enable (comment out in
/etc/apt/sources.list) the Universe repository? Once you do that,

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install scribus
