pspp install problems slackware 9.1.

Hi, I'm trying to install the pspp statistical package, but getting a bunch pf errors, below is the output of the build.

make[2]: Entering directory `/home/downloads/pspp/pspp-0.3.0/src'

make[2]: *** [glob.o] Error 1

Does anyone have an idea on how to fix this. I'm running slackware 9.1.

Thanks in advance.

I'm a newbie and running slackware 10.0. I decided to try out the PSPP program but I received the following error message when trying to create the configuration (configure) file by running autoconf error: possibly undefined macro: AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE
If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
See the Autoconf documentation. error: possibly undefined macro: AM_CONDITIONAL error: possibly undefined macro: AM_GNU_GETTEXT error: possibly undefined macro: AM_GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION

I don't understand what it means and appreciate if someone can guide on what I should be doing
