Installing GNU-PSPP in Slackware-14

I recently installed full Slackware-14 and it is working very well. I was, however, surprised to find that a GNU software PSPP ( does not install properly in full Slackware-14. It did not run and ldd command found following missing library files:
root@slack:/home/abcd/Downloads# ldd /usr/bin/pspp | grep "not found" => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found
What is the best way to install PSPP in Slackware?

Download sbopkg ( or install the "plotutils" from - then compile pspp manually or even create your own SlackBuild script for it. Infos about how to to this in case you are not familiar with it:[]=source . In the linked example you would usually (on Slackware) use "configure --prefix=/usr" and eventually "configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64" on Slackware64. configure should tell you if there are any dependencies missing, that you could hunt down on

Looking at the list of missing library files: - This is later than the in Slackware. Maybe a symlink would work. - This an interface to Postgres databases. Perhaps you do not need it. - and - Supplied by the GSL package from
