You don't say why you want to do this or why the source tarball/distribution
doesn't work for you. It looks, from reading the INSTALL file, that it is
best installed by and within the php process.
make sure you have enabled default extensions, and if you want faster
downloads, enable the zlib extension. You must also enable the CLI
SAPI with the --enable-cli extension directive. After this, simply run:
and PEAR will be automatically configured for you.
For users who cannot perform the above steps, or who wish to obtain the
latest PEAR with a slightly higher risk of failure, use go-pear. go-pear
is obtained by downloading http://go-pear.org and saving it as go-pear.php.
After downloading, simply run "php go-pear.php" or open it in a web browser
(windows only) to download and install PEAR.
Seems like you could use the system php to perform the second operation.
