SPSS is licensed software so you'll have to ensure you have one. Never installed before, but I'd imagine it comes packaged with an installer (or as an RPM) and I'd be inclined to install locally into users home directory (e.g. ~/bin). Not a very clean/gentoo approach, but I doubt it warrants writing an ebuild. You might want to consider some of the R GUI's such as... R Commander RGNumeric ...and others detailed at Neil -- "The combination of some data and an aching desire for an answer does not ensure that a reasonable answer can be extracted from a given body of data." ~ John Tukey (1986), "Sunset salvo".
