Description:
------------
An attempt to install the package on php 5.4 results an error saying

statistics.c:165:2: error: unknown type name 'pval'; did you mean 'zval'?
        pval result;
        ^~~~

This happens because type pval has been completely removed from php since 5.4. 

As a temporary workaround, it is required to manually replace pval with zval in statistics.c, for more details see http://allabouthobby.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/phpize-error-unknown-type-name-pval.html

Test script:
---------------
pecl install stats

Expected result:
----------------
Package installed successfully 

Actual result:
--------------
statistics.c:165:2: error: unknown type name 'pval'; did you mean 'zval'?
        pval result;
        ^~~~

...

8 warnings and 7 errors generated.
make: *** [statistics.lo] Error 1
