     In the PSPP site they say that it "Inter-operates with Gnumeric,
     LibreOffice, OpenOffice.Org and other free software."
     What kind of inter-operation is available with LibreOffice?

Well there are various ways it can interoperate:

1 If using the GUI, you have the clipboard:
  From the data editor you can cut/copy and paste to/from LibreOffice 

2 You can export your results to OpenDocument format, which then be read by
  LibreOffice:  (Use "pspp -o report.odt" , or from the GUI Output 
  Viewer: File|Export )

3 You can import directly from .ods files using the GET DATA command. (See 
  Section 9.4 of the user manual).  Currently there is no GUI dialog to do 
  this - but that is under development ...

     May I import data to PSPP directly from an .ods file? Or I have to
     export to .csv first?

No.  You don't have to export to .csv but you can do that if you find it more
