This probably means you need xlibs-dev...  But I would save the time and trouble of tracking all and every build requirement by doing

sudo apt-get build-dep scribus

This requires that you have the "src" lines in your /etc/apt/sources.list enabled for main and universe at least - what it does is grab all the build dependencies for you automatically. You should see less complaints from your ./configure script after doing this ;-)
