In Ubuntu, the attached patch was applied to achieve the following:

Binary package hint: php-pear

Quoting from the bug report:
> Most of PECL packages require /usr/bin/phpize and some other php5-dev
> files to get installed/compiled (i.e. pecl/fribidi), but php5-dev is
> not always installed.
> The worst issue is that /usr/bin/pecl (or "/usr/bin/pear install
> pecl/...") doesn't give user any clue on how to resolve the problem.
> A simple solution is to add php5-dev to php-pear's dependencies. Another
> one is to introduce another package, php-pecl, that contains /usr/bin/pecl
> and set php5-dev as a dep of php-pecl.

  * debian/control: Recommend php5-dev for php-pear. (LP: #634359)

Thanks for considering the patch.
