Trying to install PHP into a directory other than /usr/local results in a broken PEAR install, because the --prefix directory is not honoured:

Installing PHP SAPI module
Installing shared extensions:     /house/elmicha/spe142/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20020429/
Installing PHP CLI binary:        /house/elmicha/spe142/bin/
Installing PEAR environment:      /house/elmicha/spe142/lib/php/

Warning: mkdir(/usr/local/lib/php) []: Permission denied in /house/elmicha/local/src/php-4.3.0pre1/pear/System.php on line 236

Warning: mkdir(/usr/local/lib/php/.registry) []: No such file or directory in /house/elmicha/local/src/php-4.3.0pre1/pear/System.php on line 236

Works fine here. What was the full configure line used?

I tried it again with a clean source tree and all worked well  - I can't reproduce it. Sorry for the annoyance.

I have the same problem, when building an RPM of PHP, the case I have is that I will in the end install it below a /app/... structure only when building an RPM it will be placed below /tmp/...

When buildning the RPM I don't want write access to the /app/... I found a problem with the install-pear.php and PEAR_Installer(). When the PEAR_Installer is initializing 
it creates some directories based on php_dir variable, only we are once the init is done replace it with $reg_dir, which can be php_dir, or install_root and php_dir. The patch below will set the php_dir to $reg_dir while it initializes the put back the original value, fast and ugly workaround ;-)

I did it on php-4.3.0, checked the code in php-4.3.0RC4 didn't see anything that it should be solved.

Set the INSTALL_ROOT environment variable, and install-pear.php will take care of the rest.  No need for dirty hacks.
