Although there is an ebuild for Scribus that includes the *9999, I've found trying to specify the development branch with USE flags problematic. Instead, I staged a copy of the high watermark of Scribus via Subversion at /usr/local/src.

This posting will document what I did to get Scribus to build.

I staged Scribus:
cd /usr/local/src
time svn checkout svn:// scribushw
Checked out revision 20141.

real   1m55.903s
user   0m4.520s
sys   0m3.950s

the "hw" stands for high watermark. The code tree is quite large and will take a couple of minutes to download.

Then, I built as follows:
themis src # cd scribushw
themis scribushw # ./configure

Scribus uses the CMake ( buildsystem instead of configure.
CMake uses different options than configure, but some have direct equivalents:
   <srcdir>           : the source directory
   --prefix=<dir>     : -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=<dir>
Once CMake has run successfully, you can use "make edit_cache" to view and modify all settings.

Your current configure options translate more or less to:
   cmake . ; make ; make install

themis scribushw #
themis scribushw # cmake . -DWANT_GRAPHICSMAGICK=1

themis scribushw #

There are dependencies that I had to install to get to this point. Here are the packages I installed by reiteratively trying the cmake command:
emerge qtcore
emerge qtwidgets
emerge dev-qt/qtxml
emerge dev-qt/qtwebkit
emerge dev-qt/qtopengl
emerge dev-qt/linguist-tools
emerge dev-qt/qtquickcontrols

I have qt5 enabled on my system as Scribus requires qt5. I also installed graphicsmagick.

The next step is to make(I added the "time" command since this will be a long build)
themis scribushw # time make

I have 6 GB of RAM on my laptop (Dell Inspiron).

If you want to see the entire build, it is available at:

Note: I created the color build log in html by using /usr/bin/script and dev-python/ansi2html which creates its output to the file named typescript unless you specify otherwise:
cat typescript | ansi2html > output.html

As I was documenting this for posting, I see the maintainer for the package, Justin Lecher, released 1.5 This follows just a day or two after Scribus released 1.5, so very prompt service by Justin.

This posting can be good for someone who wants to follow the high watermark of the Scribus development. I had on a prior build of Gentoo had *9999 of Scribus and it god completely out of whack, so I decided I was not going to use portage to follow the high watermark.
