     I don't understand the changes to the Perl code.  Why is it
     necessary to rename  Does the `do' command not work
     properly in some versions of Perl?

I'm no Perl expert, but this is what I found:  The 'do' command seemed
to work only if its argument was found in the current dir. Therefore,
it was failing when pspp was being built from outside the source tree.
I changed it to a module (which apparently require a .pm suffix) so
that I can specify its location using the -I flag on the command
line. For similar reasons it was necessary to pass the operations.def
using the -i in your script rather than letting the script guess where
it was.
