If you use the \ character before each pdftex command it might work 

This routine works for me:
\pdfximage width .5\hsize{/usr/local/active/scribus/newbook.pdf}

The command \pdfrefximage <integer> requires the number of a 
previously defined image. \pdflastximage delivers the number of the 
last image defined. The above would also work with
\pdfrefximage 1
