New submission from Gunnar Wrobel <p at rdus.de>:

This bug has been derived from issue3260.

There have been additional discussions on the mailing list:


Original problem:

PEAR directly installs from a tgz. And these tgz's are only installable as a
package not when unpacked. This prevents standard patching.

Possible workarounds:

1) Unpack the package, move package.xml from outside the package back into the
package, patch the files that require patching and also patch the md5sum in
package.xml. Install using package.xml.

2) Unpack the package and copy package.xml from upstream into the unpacked
package directory. Patch the files that require patching. Install using package.xml

In general we assume that this is a PEAR bug as one should be able to unpack,
patch and install a PEAR package.
