Follow the instructions in  README.developer

Also be aware that you need to use up to date tools.
It's known to work with Autoconf 2.58, Automake 1.7, Gettext  0.12.1.

Debian sarge provides all these, but you might find that
/usr/bin/auto{make,conf} has been symbolic linked to an older version,
so be careful.

     Dear developers:
        I am desperately trying to compile PSPP from CVS.
     Unfortunately, all configuration files have been removed from
     revision 1.4. So it seems I have to use autoconf to produce them
     However, this does not work:
     $ 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 running an up-to-date debian/sarge box.
     Thanks for any clues, Joachim
