Nobody is asking you to "destroy your toolchain". I was merely asking
you to try another tool in order to gather information.  If I had an
installation of fedora9 then I would try it myself.  But I don't.  So
we rely on volunteers.

     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.
