The PLIST handling for pear is done automagically by
lang/php/pear_plist.php.  For some reason the script isn't picking up
the package name correctly and that's why you're getting these errors.
More interestingly I just tried updating a few random pear-* packages
and not all displayed this problem.  pear-Date and pear-HTTP_Request did
but pear-DB didn't so that's a little strange.

Could you please open a PR for this so the details are not lost.
