I may have understood this wrong, but I thought that CentOS was a "downstream"
of Redhat Fedora.  I see that PSPP 0.8.5 (the latest release) is already 
for Fedora - See

So presumably it ought to be in CentOS too.  Or have I misunderstood something?


        I think it's no more complex than PSPP having library requirements that
        CentOS 6 will never meet (without developer-level efforts). We can also
        see that PSPP's requirements are accelerating away from CentOS 6.  Here
        are the details:

        *./confgure on pspp-0.8.5 produces:*

        > *configure: error: The following required prerequisites are not
        > installed.**
        > **You must install them before PSPP can be built:**
        > **        glib 2.0 version 2.32 or later (or use --without-gui)*
        > address@hidden pspp-0.8.5]$ rpm -qi glib2
