When using PECL to install PDFLIB in 5.4.0 RC2, make fails with the following:

In file included from /private/tmp/pear/temp/pdflib/pdf.c:131:
/private/tmp/pear/temp/pdflib/pdf7.c: In function ‘pdflib_object_new_ex’:
/private/tmp/pear/temp/pdflib/pdf7.c:336: error: ‘zend_class_entry’ has no member 
named ‘default_properties’
make: *** [pdf.lo] Error 1
ERROR: `make' failed

Note that make for PDFLIB succeeds for 5.3.9 RC2. 

This problem also occurred with 5.4.0 RC1.

Expected result:
Make for PDFLIB should succeed.

Actual result:
Make for PDFLIB fails.

I have the same problem running a linux debian testing version with php 5.4, the followind solution work for me.

after attempting installing pdflib with :pecl install pdflib

I got the same error so when the program creates the tmp file /tmp/pear/temp/pdflib/pdf7.c and before I enter the path to pdflib installation? : /usr/local 

I manually modify the pdf7.c in the temp directory in the line 336 where it says "default_properties" just change it to "default_properties_table", that is the NEW name for that property in the zend struct.

After that I was able to build the "".

Note that I am not a 'C' programmer or a PHP developer, so I do not know if this is good solution, but for now, it works.

Hope this information will be helpful.

Prepared a new PECL Package (2.1.9) including the fix for this.
