Friedrich, thanks for finding and fixing the problem.  (What a terrible error message!)

Hi, i think the problem is due the selected pspp version name 0.10.5pre1 which results in a problem with the PERL version number which does not allow characters.

I pushed a fix for this (changed the version name to 0.10.5-pre1. In my mac environment the perl test now run again.

See: http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/pspp.git/commit/?id=f02c89686fbe706e2800a91d13933f1129ec5c36

I don't have an x86_64 build environment set up, so that simply isn't working.

The more interesting question is why i386 builds are failing.  It's due to the perl module not working.  It builds, but then all the tests fail with:

../../tests/perl-module.at:54: LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$abs_top_builddir/src/.libs \
   DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=$abs_top_builddir/src/.libs \
   $PERL -I$abs_top_builddir/perl-module/blib/arch \
         -I$abs_top_builddir/perl-module/blib/lib test.pl

I fussed with this for a long time this morning, but I failed to solve the problem, so for now I am going to run my builds without configuring the Perl module.

For some time no PSPP automated builds have been generated, especially x86_64.
