It is probably easier if you make the builddir in the Version135
directory, or even beside that one. You just need to adjust your "../"
part of your cmake command to fit. You do not need to remove the
builddir .. very rarely is it needed, and not removing it means when you
svn update, only the changes will be built. Having the builddir in the
Scribus directory will be what causes issues when you svn update as that
directory doesn't exist in the svn tree.

I would say only when issues are found, and I would suggest deleting the
install directory scribus135install now and then, and re-run make install.
