When installing PEAR I get:

Installing PEAR environment:      /var/tmp/php-ze2-root/usr/share/pear/

Fatal error: Can't use method return value in write context in /home/mkj/tmp/ZEND2/php4-ze2/pear/PEAR/Installer.php on line 702

Fatal error: Can't use method return value in write context in /home/mkj/tmp/ZEND2/php4-ze2/pear/PEAR/Installer.php on line 702

Removing the "&" in line 702. Gives me the following errors:

Installing PEAR environment:      /var/tmp/php-ze2-root/usr/share/pear/

Which is the same error I got with 4.3.0RC1, but was fixed in RC2.

Does the user, under which you try to install PHP and PEAR, the necessary permissions to write in /usr/share?

Normally you need to be root for this.

No, the don't have permission to write to /usr/share, but that is not where I want to install to my install command is "make install INSTALL_ROOT=/var/tmp/php-root install_targets=install-pear" I have permissions to write to that location.

This bug has been fixed in CVS.

In case this was a PHP problem, snapshots of the sources are packaged
every three hours; this change will be in the next snapshot. You can
grab the snapshot at http://snaps.php.net/.
 
In case this was a documentation problem, the fix will show up soon at
http://www.php.net/manual/.

In case this was a PHP.net website problem, the change will show
up on the PHP.net site and on the mirror sites in short time.
 
Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PHP better.
