This is actually a requirement of PEAR, not PHP:

In order to use PEAR packages you may want to alter the default
include_path of PHP to include the PEAR installation directory where the
packages are located.  To do this you need to edit the include_path
directive in your php.ini file:


Change the "include_path" directive to read as follows:

       include_path = ".:${PREFIX}/lib/php"

[adrianp /usr/pkgsrc/lang/pear ]$

In pkgsrc land we tend not to modify installed configuration files. In this case php.ini is already installed from the php package so the pear package just spits out this message.

        Actually we do tend to modify installed config to match the
        paths used by pkgsrc :)

        I think this is one case where it makes sense to have the default
        php.ini include the pear path. What do others feel?
