When starting Scribus, OpenSceneGraph library gets loaded, but files a warning about a missing dynamic library:

Warning: dynamic library '/usr/lib/osgPlugins-3.6.5/' exists, but an error occurred while trying to open it: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The warning disappears once the libvncserver package is installed. AFAICS, OpenSceneGraph is only needed for import of rather specialised 3D files, and the warning is non-fatal.

Additional info:
* package version openscenegraph-3.6.5-1
* The warning seems to persist for some time already, I found it in the German Arch Linux forum from 2017: (probably unnoticed since Scribus is mostly used in a graphical context)
* At least the Ubuntu focal package libopenscenegraph160 seems to not include

Steps to reproduce:
1. Have scribus installed (brings openscenegraph as a hard dependency), but not libvncserver
2. Open scribus from commandline. The above warning is filed to the terminal.
