PSPP-BUG: Re: AW: Questions on PSPP: thank you

Hello Ben,

Sorry about the wait, but I'm trying to compile pspp on linux now,
using gentoo and the mingw crosscompile utils.
The windows version of Mingw is very hard to use and have many bugs,
like the problems with latin chars and the relocatable issue.

Im have a lot of work, because I need to compile everything that pspp
needs to make it work, like gtk,glade,pango,cairo, etc.
And each one of its has its own issues. So far I've able to compile
the pspp.exe, and I believe that soon I will have the psppire.exe.

One advantage is that I can now compile the git's versions, instead of
the last 0.6.1.
