At this moment I don't have access to to files and can reproduce the errors.

Compile time errors. Mainly undefined procedures etc. Also 1 *.h files is not found. From what I have seen so far, a lot of them on *.c files within the /gl directory. Without deep analyses, I guess almost or even all problems are within the GUI part of PSPP. But I didn't succeed in getting the program compiled yet.
For instance "ftello" and "fseeko" are reported as undefined before first use.
Have fun

The mingw build certainly used to work, at least the majority of its
functionality worked not too long ago.

Can you give us some more information about these problems.  Are these
"errors" compile time errors or run time errors? Or exactly what
problem are you seeing?
