The current version of SPSS allows you simply to save a dataset in SAS format, either transport or native. It includes the option of saving the value labels for SAS as well.
This is a much more robust method than using the portable file format.

I did not see a response yet so here is how I do it.
When I move from SPSS to SAS I save the SPSS file as a *.por in the files
of type (SPSS portable file format). The import command for SAS looks like
proc convert spss=save out=LIBRARY.NAME;
filename save 'D:\SPSS\DATA\SPSSFILE.por';;
SAS does a decent job of documenting this in their help file. The portable
file format saves labels and may even do values (can't recall).
