I've just downloaded PHP 5.16 specifically because I wanted to try using the latest PEAR package (chiefly because a Flickr PHP wrapper demands it). 

Clicking (or executing from the command line) go-pear.bat fails with the following message:

FATAL emalloc(): Unable to allocate 811338529 bytes
Press any key to continue...

Expected result:
What is described in the documentation: that the Manager (whatever that is) is installed after I have responded to the resulting questions.

Actual result:
FATAL emalloc(): Unable to allocate 811338529 bytes
Press any key to continue...

Increase your memory limit.

Perhaps I should have made it clearer that I've been running this set-up of Apache 2 on my personal computer, with 256Mb of memory for about 5 years without any other problems. If PEAR really needs almost a gigabyte of RAM to work then I guess this isn't the package for me.

Increase your *PHP* memory limit (defined to 8M now).

You can change it either in php.ini or in the pear command file.
