I'm moving this discussion from pspp-users to pspp-dev, since the 
topic is clearly in the realm of development now.

     Could static linking bring a solution?

Unfortunately not.  This library must be loaded dynamically (by
libglade), so it must also be linked dynamically.

I found some useful information at which might
help us.  I won't be able to get around to looking at this until the
later half of next week.  So if somebody wants to do it first, then
feel free.  

Reading the information in that URL, it seems that there's a lot
of "black magic" involved in creating and loading dynamic libraries on
w32 platforms.  Some of this magic has to be done on our part, but
some also has to have been done by the libglade developers.  I've no
idea if they would have done this (or even been aware of the
requirement).   If not, then I'm afraid that we'll not be able to run
psppire on cygwin :(
Also, windoze is a platform with which I have only a very shallow
familiarity, so I will not be surprised if I get totally stuck.
