How strange that there are two extensions for the same purpose. I didn't know. Please file a port request ticket in the issue tracker.

Also strange. I didn't know our php5 port wasn't providing pecl. That may be a good thing, though; using pecl to install extensions into the MacPorts prefix would confuse MacPorts if we ever add ports for those extensions later. So let's just get it out of the way and make ports for any extensions you need.
