Package: php-pear
Version: 5.2.10.dfsg.1-2.2
Severity: normal


Having a package like [1] unpacked at /home/fgimenez/php-net-sieve, the command

  pear install -O /home/fgimenez/php-net-sieve/NET_Sieve-1.1.7/package.xml


  download directory "/home/aba/php5-5.2.10.dfsg.1/pear-build-download" is not writeable.  Change download_dir config variable to a writeable dir
  Cannot download non-local package "/home/fgimenez/php-net-sieve/NET_Sieve-1.1.7/package.xml"
  install failed

This prevents also the building of pear packages (tested with cdbs and dh-make-php, probably with debhelper).
