     I am using pspp (GNU PSPP) 0.7.9 with Ubuntu Server 12.
     Here are two last lines from my SPS file:
     SET LOCALE='windows-1251'.
     SAVE OUTFILE="300513_164029_50.sav".
     SAV file still has encoding " ISO 8859-5 standard; ISO Cyrillic" (shown 
     command "enca -L ru 300513_164029_50.sav").
     This SAV file can be opened in PSPP and SPSS, but in SPSS Cyrillic letters
     are corrupted.
I hadn't heard of "enca" before, but according to its web page it is supposed
to work on text files.   The results will not be meaningful for .sav files.
Instead, use the pspp-dump-sav tool which comes with pspp (I don't know if
Ubuntu distributes that) OR use the SYSFILE INFO command.

Are you interested in the encoding of the dictionary (ie the names of variables 
and labels) or the encoding of the string data? (or both?)
