Ideally yes, but currently Makefile.common is included after 
bsd.port.pre.mk, so we cannot define WANT_PHP_PEAR there. We can define 
WANT_PHP_PEAR in every PEAR port or study a better solution (this is why 
I've CC'ed thierry)...probably we can simplify Makefile.common a bit 
(since now we have php.conf, and pecl has been separated from pear) and 
include it before bsd.port.mk.
