I am trying install the sphinx pecl extension and I am getting the following error:

checking for libsphinxclient headers in /usr/local/sphinx/lib... not found
configure: error: Cannot find libsphinxclient headers
ERROR: `/tmp/pear/temp/sphinx/configure --with-sphinx=/usr/local/sphinx/lib' failed

while clearly they exist:
ls -lhA /usr/local/sphinx/lib/

If your libs are in /usr/local/sphinx/lib, then the installation prefix is "/usr/local/sphinx", without the "lib" part.
