     It's probably not hard to fix.  Have you tried?

I'm working on it.  One of the problems is inappropriate use of size_t ---
more specifically, assuming that sizeof(size_t) == sizeof(int).

IMHO size_t should only  be used for things compatible with the sizeof() 
operator.  Not for measuring the number of items in an array, which much
of the PSPP code has done.
