Description:
------------
I am trying to build PHP 5.2.5 for an RPM, on a system which already 
has PHP 5.2.4 installed (I built that RPM several months ago).  In 
order to build the RPM, I need to make and install into a temporary 
local directory, as an unprivileged user.  The build fails with this 
error:

Installing PEAR environment:      /hlg/rpmbuild/buildroot/php-5.2.5-1-
manual/usr/local/lib/php/download directory "/tmp/pear/cache" is not 
writeable.  Change download_dir config variable to a writeable dir
 ...

... followed by a series of related errors, and resulting in an 
incomplete install tree.

I think this bug someone filed with debian.org is the same problem:
  http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=463979


Note: php.net directed me to file PEAR-related bugs on the PEAR web 
site; however, their bug system seems to only want bugs about to 
specific pear packages, so this problem did not seem to fit there.

Reproduce code:
---------------
Unpack PHP tarfile.
Configure it with the --with-pear option.

# mkdir -p /rpmbuild/buildroot/php-5.2.5-1-manual/etc/httpd/conf/
# cp -p /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf /rpmbuild/buildroot/php-5.2.5-1-manual/etc/httpd/conf/
# make INSTALL_ROOT=/rpmbuild/buildroot/php-5.2.4-4-manual install



Expected result:
----------------
I expect a complete PHP install tree, with PEAR, in 
/rpmbuild/buildroot/php-5.2.5-1-manual/

Actual result:
--------------

The key, I think, is the INSTALL_ROOT I defined for php's make.

In the past, I believe this affected the pear build as well; now, it 
seems the pear build done by the php Makefile does not look at this, and 
instead uses the same temp dir and subdirectories as it would use at 
runtime, which is what puts it in conflict with what's already installed 
and in use on the system.

However, I can't figure out what changed in PHP such that INSTALL_ROOT 
used to be honored but now isn't.

At Debian I fixed the problem by passing a custom dir via 
PHP_PEAR_DOWNLOAD_DIR.

So:
make INSTALL_ROOT=/rpmbuild/buildroot/php-5.2.4-4-manual install
would become something like
make PHP_PEAR_DOWNLOAD_DIR="$(CURDIR)/tmp/" 
INSTALL_ROOT=/rpmbuild/buildroot/php-5.2.4-4-manual install
