> make check does not and cannot work when cross compiling; not for w32 nor any target.

With an older version of PSPP, "make check" worked OK for me cross-compiling for mingw32, because I had wine installed in a way that Windows .exes could run directly. This is what I've asked Harry to do too, but he's had trouble and I haven't been able to help him so far.

No, you understood it right.

Ben asked me in comment 11 of the referred bug to use the check.

When cross-compiling for MSWindows wine could be used for checking I guess.

It might also be a good idea to have a regression.sps or so which can run several tests and check the results. This could even help when an end-user encounters a problem.

This all seems not urgent to me as I am building without check for years now. But if it is easy to implement it could be useful.

Maybe somebody of the users can build a regression syntax file.

I'm not sure that I understand the issue.

make check does not and cannot work when cross compiling; not for w32 nor any target. This is true not only for PSPP but for all Gnu packages (that I know of).

Have I misunderstood the issue?

Filed so it will not be forgotten;

The issue of not being possible to run make check when cross-compiling for MSWindows, raised in bug #33250 is still present.

So the attachment for the testsuite.log
