I just used
And for the -20090125 versie everything worked fine. It was on a reasonable fresh installation so I guess it is not corrupt. Using "make" on the same source gives the same result. I will try and download the source again. It could be an extraction problem. However it is strange that it happens on 2 versions and the 3th (which was the last I tried) works fine.
Did you download the source from the snapshot page?
BTW. Wouldn't it be an idea to have a link to the snapshot builds on the gnu pspp home page?
