Yes, pear-PEAR/Makefile.common uses such variables. Of course, they
could be renamed, if needed, but that would imply modifications in a lot
of pear-* ports.

Pear ports cannot be strictly PREFIX safe: they are PHP_BASE safe.
There is the same problem with some ports which need to install under
X11BASE, or Apache modules, or mozilla extensions, etc.
