CentOS attempts close compatibility to Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL),
so if RHEL doesn't ship PSPP, then contributions would go into an
Extra's repo or some projects maintain a package for RHEL/CentOS.

But Fedora is upstream and used to maintain a PSPP package (maybe still
does; and it not using ancient versions of libraries like RHEL) so
that's where I'd focus.

I can take a look since it's been a long time. The last version of
PSPPIRE that I got to compile on CentOS 6 (with considerable help from
you) was 0.8.5, IIRC, and I think at the time we didn't think that
CentOS 6 would ever support future versions because of the old libraries
(including, IIRC, libc). That's fine, it's almost EOL, but CentOS 7
probably isn't that much more advanced.
