I think the crosstabs issue came up previously and I don't think it's possible. I would suggest that you log a bug for each of these with a clear description of what you expect and what doesn't work. Including your syntax and a tiny sample dataset would also help.
About compute and dummy coding, that's also not available through the PSPP GUI but I have never found the SPSS GUI particularly easy... Wouldn't it be easier to just write a snippet of code to do this? BTW, I use recode statements:
recode d5_sex (1=1) (SYSMIS=COPY) (ELSE=0) into d5_sex_males.
If you had multiple values, recode is a lot easier:
* assume segment is 1-5 and 1 is the "baseline" group.
recode d6_segment (2=1) (SYSMIS=COPY) (ELSE=0) into d6_segment_2.
recode d6_segment (3=1) (SYSMIS=COPY) (ELSE=0) into d6_segment_3.
recode d6_segment (4=1) (SYSMIS=COPY) (ELSE=0) into d6_segment_4.
recode d6_segment (5=1) (SYSMIS=COPY) (ELSE=0) into d6_segment_5.
And finally, I don't know anything about the last question. PSPP had syntax before it had a GUI, so if it's not supported by syntax, I doubt it's supported by the GUI. I think a couple SPSS routines (e.g., FREQ) have some (syntax) options about how to list variables, and those are likely to work similarly in PSPP. SPSS also buries similar features in a context menu in the output window but PSPP wouldn't have anything like that at this time.
