Summary0002057: Xdebug cannot be installed via PECL on OpenBSD

During installation on OpenBSD, PECL complains about missing "phpize", which cannot be installed via PECL or PEAR and it is not in any of the packages. I have searched the net for a solution, but all I have found is that on Linux "phpize" comes with some "php-dev" package which doesn't exist on OpenBSD.

Steps To Reproduce

pecl install xdebug

downloading xdebug-3.1.2.tgz ...
Starting to download xdebug-3.1.2.tgz (230,023 bytes) .................................................done: 230,023 bytes
93 source files, building
running: phpize
sh: phpize: not found
ERROR: `phpize' failed

TagsNo tags attached.
Operating SystemOpenBSD
PHP Version7.4.20-7.4.29

The pecl tool should depend on phpize. If the OpenBSD package manager does not install that, or make available, then that is a bug in the pecl package on OpenBSD. I can't do anything about that. I did see some hints that there is a phpize package (or port), so you might be able to try that.

FWIW, somebody did reach out to me in the last few weeks about making a specific OpenBSD port for Xdebug, but that has not been published yet, I think.

There is a port for it now:
