Nope.  This appears to be a bug in the 64 bit builds.  It affects
ppc64 as well as x86_64.  I reported it to bugzilla here:


It seems like a simple fix, but I don't have an x86_64 boxes to test
with.  As linked in the bug, the fix is reported to be to add
--with-extra-libs=%{_libdir} to the %configure call in the spec file.
(I think that the --with-python-dir=... option can be removed then,
but I haven't tested that.)

If you can build an test with the attached changes to the scribus spec
file, add a comment to the bug report if it helps.

(Disclaimer:  I know next to nothing about scribus, I was just curious
about the build failure. :)
