That's from a change in gnulib that hasn't been fixed on the
stable branch.

I would recommend just building PSPP 0.6.2.  It shouldn't have
this problem and it is practically equivalent to the pspp-stable
tarball that you downloaded.

64 bits should not make a difference in terms of what version you
should run.

I would recommend upgrading from 0.6.1 to 0.6.2.
