PHP 4.3.3 builds as expected under OpenBSD 3.2 w/ Apache 1.3.27.  However, when I attempt to install, I receive the following:

-- cut here --
Build complete.
(It is safe to ignore warnings about tempnam and tmpnam).

Installing PEAR environment:      /usr/local/lib/php/

Parse error: parse error in ./php-4.3.3/pear/package-Archive_Tar.xml on line 1
*** Error code 255
-- cut here --

Line 1 of Archive_Tar.xml is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>

Here are my configure options:

./configure --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs --with-mysql --with-xml --with-pgsql --enable-ftp --enable-short-tags --enable-calendar --enable-track-vars --with-tsrm-pth --enable-sockets --with-gettext --with-zlib-dir --with-jpeg --with-png --with-gd --with-exif --with-ttf --with-bcmath --with-pspell --with-pdflib --with-config-file-path=/var/www/conf

The module does seems to work (phpinfo() reports the correct version), however attempting a command from the command prompt such as "php -v" hangs waiting for input.  

4.3.2 does not have this problem.

Reproduce code:
$ ./configure --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs --with-mysql --with-xml --with-pgsql --enable-ftp --enable-short-tags --enable-calendar --enable-track-vars --with-tsrm-pth --enable-sockets --with-gettext --with-zlib-dir --with-jpeg --with-png --with-gd --with-exif --with-ttf --with-bcmath --with-pspell --with-pdflib --with-config-file-path=/var/www/conf

$ make
# make install

Expected result:
No installation errors.
