    libplot, from GNU plotutils
    (plotutils - GNU Project - Free Software Foundation (FSF)).

    Whether it is;
    libplplot9 (5.8.0-6) [universe]

    ???


    # apt-cache policy libplplot9
    Code:
    libplplot9:

    (pkg-config Wiki - FrontPage)

    # apt-cache policy pkg-config
    Code:
    pkg-config:
      Installed: (none)
      Candidate: 0.22-1
      Version table:
         0.22-1 0
            500 http://ftp.us.debian.org lenny/main Packages

    libglade
    (Libglade), version 2.0 or later.


    Whether it is;

            500 http://ftp.us.debian.org lenny/main Packages

    Already installed.


    Optional:-


    libncurses (Announcing ncurses 5.7 - GNU Project - Free Software Foundation (FSF)). Without it,
    PSPP will assume it is running in an 80x25 terminal.

    Whether it is;
    libncurses5 (5.7+20081213-1)
    shared libraries for terminal handling
    ???


    # apt-cache policy libncurses5
    Code:

      Installed: 5.7+20081213-1
      Candidate: 5.7+20081213-1

    Already installed.


    libreadline and libhistory
    (The GNU Readline Library). Without
    them, interactive command editing and history features in the
    text-based user interface will be disabled.


    Whether it is;
    libreadline5 (5.2-3.1)
    GNU readline and history libraries, run-time libraries
    ???

    # apt-cache policy libreadline5
    Code:
    libreadline5:
      Installed: 5.2-3.1
      Candidate: 5.2-3.1
      Version table:
     *** 5.2-3.1 0
            500 http://ftp.us.debian.org lenny/main Packages
            100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
    Already installed.


    I can't find;
    libhistory

    Where can I get it? Thanks


    Texinfo (Texinfo - GNU Documentation System - GNU Project - Free Software Foundation (FSF)), version 4.7 or
    later. Installing Texinfo will allow you to build PSPP
    documentation in PostScript or PDF format.

    # apt-cache policy texinfo
    Code:
    texinfo:
      Installed: (none)
      Candidate: 4.11.dfsg.1-4
      Version table:
         4.11.dfsg.1-4 0
            500 http://ftp.us.debian.org lenny/main Packages
    Please advise. TIA

    libplot - the package the provides this is called plotutils.

    pkg-config and libglade
    What you have looks correct. These are required for the GUI insterface, which also requires GTK2.0 which will require the X windows system.

    libncurses5, libreadline, and texinfo seem fine, as well.

    I believe the libhistory library is included with libreadline.
