Sorry for the delay answering, but I was away from my main machine.

I followed the install instructions from the tarball of pspp 0.8.1,
and after  ./configure  I get:

configure: WARNING: The following optional prerequisites are not installed.
You may wish to install them to obtain additional functionality:
        libreadline (which may itself require libncurses or libtermcap)
configure: error: The following required prerequisites are not installed.
You must install them before PSPP can be built:
        cairo 1.5 or later and pango 1.22 or later (or use --without-cairo)
        gthread 2.0 (or use --without-gui)
        gtk+ 2.0 version 2.16 or later (or use --without-gui)
        gtksourceview 2.0 version 2.2 or later (or use --without-gui)
        glib-genmarshal (or use --without-gui)
        gsl 2.0 version 1.12 or later

However, libxml2, libreadline6, libgthread3, libcairo2, libcairo5c,
libgtksourceview2, libgtk2, libgtksourceview3, gsl-bin,  are installed
for what it's worth, but apparently not recognized.

I am runing Debian Sid current 64 bit, and I have psppire 0.7.9
installed from Debian respositories.

Regards, Roberto.
