i have a comment on this. first and foremost, i would really like to see a
sane setup for lenny, where we can some kind of way to have downloaded and
debian-installed packages coexist to a certain extent.
regarding this particular fix though, my main concern is that it makes the
system a bit schizophrenic about where stuff should be going. i don't know,
for example, whether any other packages make use of pear commands in their
i would say a true fix should do one of the following:
- properly patch pear to look in both places
- provide a /usr/bin/pear-local for the local admin to use, and
leave /usr/bin/pear unchanged
- move the /usr-oriented pear out of /usr/bin, and have /usr/bin/pear act like
pear-local in the previous example
or maybe someone else has another suggestion?
