     The problems is:

       - On MSWindows: If the nl.po is included in the source archive and the
     LINGUAGE (or what its name is) file is changed, the is created and
     placed in the new directory nl/LC_MESSAGES. When PSPPIRE is started it
     doesn't use the dutch translation. This happens on the Cygwin and on the
     Mingw versions. If I check things on the Cygwin version. I see it is
     compiled with --enable-nls and gettext is installed.  I don't know why
     the translation isn't used. The installation is correct as it works on
     Linux. A problem could be that PSPPIRE uses other/wrong language settings.
     Or PSPPIRE on MSWindows is not looking in the directory where the .mo files
     is placed. Or...... Infact I have no clue where to search for the
     problem/solution and I hope seeing where PSPPIRE is looking for the .mo
     files etc. could give me a clue.
     I hope this makes more clear why I would like to see this information.
OK.    Now I see your problem, but, there's nothing that can be put
into the pspp source which will help you.

I don't know if Cygwin or Mingw has the strace command.  If it does,
then running strace on the pspp{ire} binary might help you to see what
directory the program it trying to open.

Also, check *all* your environment variables.  In particular LANG,
LANGUAGE, LC_ALL and LC_MESSAGES may affect which language is used.

At the end of the day, however, I think this is a gettext vs. windows
problem. Not a pspp problem.
