Hi Thijs,

I have made the necessary corrections to the package. Attached is an
interdiff between the 2 versions. Please have a quick look/review, and
let me know if you think it's ok that I upload the amended version.

Also, I maintain all of my php PEAR packages in Git. Would it make sense
to add that one in /git/pkg-php as well? Do you want me to do so after
this upload?

Please let me know, this package really is a blocker for me.
