Confirmed. ftp://pfaffben.user.msu.edu/fiasco -> pspp and (from the README
under pspp):
This is the distribution archive for PSPP, a free, compatible
replacement for the statistical program SPSS.  PSPP was originally
named Fiasco.

Currently PSPP source code is available from the following sites:

* ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/pspp

This site always has the latest sources for PSPP and patches from
earlier versions.

* ftp://pfaffben.user.msu.edu/pub/pspp

This site has source code tarballs for present and past versions, as
well as patches.  Unfortunately, this site is not available from
mid-December to mid-January or mid-May to mid-August.

Binaries are not yet available for any OS.
Thanks for the responses!
