Are you sure, you are not joking? I should spend couple of hours 
destroying my toolchain (these packages are all dependent on each 
other, so maybe even some recompilation would be needed) just in 
order to prove that your code is broken as it is described on the 
website you himself quote? What about other way -- you fixing 
your code for the known bugs, and me testing it afterwards?

I really don't need pspp that much -- just from my old love for 
social sciences, I thought it would be cool to have finally pspp 
working and packaging it for Fedora, so that next me looking for 
a statistical package for sociology wouldn't need to find hard 
way that pspp (old version that is) cannot really read SPSS files 
and breaks them.

Oh well, if you don't feel like you want to have your code fixed, 
then Fedora won't have pspp. Oh well.
