reported by Jean-Marc Pigeon (see "blfs-support"), there are extraneous files installed.


Looks like it has something to do with PEAR. Using the --without-pear switch to configure, those files are not installed but what does it imply if we use that switch also?

Btw, Arch uses this switch, too.

The bundled pear stuff seems to be a bit outdated: There is a patch to fix the undefined variable $metadata_dir: That statement can be found in pear/install-pear-nozlib.phar at line 8557 but cannot be patched easily cause signature will be invalid then (dunno how to resign).

If ok for now, I'll add the --without-pear switch.

If required, pear can be installed by

php go-pear.phar

but there one has to be careful about the directories which are created. To fix that, 12 directories needs to be specified...
