Test script: --------------- apt-get install php5-dev libsvn-dev pecl install channel:// Expected result: ---------------- Successful install Actual result: -------------- downloading svn-0.3.tgz ... Starting to download svn-0.3.tgz (20,724 bytes) ........done: 20,724 bytes 4 source files, building running: phpize Configuring for: PHP Api Version: 20041225 Zend Module Api No: 20060613 Zend Extension Api No: 220060519 /usr/bin/phpize: /tmp/pear/temp/svn/build/shtool: /bin/sh: bad interpreter: Permission denied Cannot find autoconf.

If you've said "you aren't allowed to execute scripts in this directory", and there's an error saying "/bin/sh: bad interpreter: Permission denied"... I can't see how this is a bug - a pain to have to mess around with, buy not a bug...

Definitely not a bug. If you Google this you'll see that this is a problem for many people. Yes it's a pain but on a system where `pear install x` works but `pecl install x` doesn't it leads me to think that perhaps something does need to be updated. It seems mounting /tmp with noexec is a pretty standard thing hosting companies do for security that not having the installer use another directory looks like an oversight.
