[php-maint] Bug#346479: php-pear: Configuration file /etc/pear/pear.conf contains hardcoded paths to maintainer setup

Package: php-pear
Version: 5.1.1-1
Severity: normal

On a default install the configuration file /etc/pear/pear.conf contains
hardcoded paths as in the setup of one of the maintainers. As they refer
to a user that won't be present on most systems (hi Adam!) this is
somewhat unfortunate.

On running 'pear' we get:

$ pear
Could not open input file:

as this is one of the (all similar) hardcoded paths.

Further information: I just used 'apt-get upgrade' which switched on
this occasion from php5.0 to php5.1. I "apt-get upgrade" regularly.
