Harry Thijssen's build process for Windows?

What Linux distro would I need to install to have pspp packaged (or have
the requirements packaged so the tarball woudl compile cleanly)? Because
I have six Linux machines running CentOS 6 and 7 and none of them will
run psppire.

Windows is the only way I can use PSPP (IRE) (because I also do not have
a Mac).

I was hopeful that Fedora would support it and I'd be willing to install
Fedora, but last time I checked (quite a while ago) they weren't
maintaining a package for the spreadsheet widget. I'm not dying to
install an apt-get-based Linux, just to run PSPP...
