Weird, it seems to fail at the very end of the configure script ...

Are there any files left in either




after the failure? I'm especially interested in the


file that has the complete progress log of the configure 
script in it, this should show what actually failed within 
the script ...

I checked both directories and there is nothing in either of them.  As for the config.log file, would that be inside of one of those directories, or is it somewhere else I'm not thinking about?

It would have been in either of the two, looks as if pecl removes all temporary installation files even on failed attempts then ... :/

What happens when you try to install manually?

  tar -zxf cairo_wrapper-0.2.4.tgz
  cd cairo_wrapper-0.2.4
  ./configure --with-cairo

This should be exactly the same steps pecl performs, only the paths being different.
