There is no need ever to run autopoint, and doing so might cause problems.

PSPP uses gettext in a slightly different way than what autopoint expects.

When rebuilding the autotools files, I got the following error while running autopoint:

          • autopoint *****
          • PWD: /var/tmp/portage/sci-mathematics/pspp-0.8.0/work/pspp-0.8.0
          • autopoint --force

autopoint: *** Missing version: please specify in configure.ac through a line 'AM_GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION(x.yy.zz)' the gettext version the package is using
autopoint: *** Stop.

  • gettext-0.18.1
  • autoconf-2.69
  • automake-1.12.4

The following patch fixes the issue.
