PEAR_Frontend_GTK2 also requires php-gtk with the libglade extension enabled. Under Windows, if you've manually downloaded and installed php-gtk, you need to uncomment the the php-gtk.extensions setting in the supplied php-cli.ini.

If "pear -G" complains about not being able to find glade, you should be aware that the php-gtk dependency comes with its own php-cli.ini file, which is where you may need to uncomment the libglade.dll line,
