Hi Ben,

I have made a webpage for downloading a pspp Mac bundle as an alternative to the
installation via macports. 

https://www.hs-augsburg.de/~beckmanf/pspp/ 
<https://www.hs-augsburg.de/~beckmanf/pspp/>

Could you add a link to that page on the pspp gnu page? 

https://www.gnu.org/software/pspp/get.html 
<https://www.gnu.org/software/pspp/get.html>

in the MacOS section?

Regards

Friedrich
