I was seeing something similar and ended up compiling php5 and all the 
php5-estensions without IP6 and it solved it for me.  I used portmaster 
that forced me to check all the make config options in all the php5 and 

I didn't actually try php --version when I had the problem but was 
sigfaulting just executing the pear command to see the help screen.

This was on my upgrade from a previous php upgrade from 5.1.4 maybe.  
It was not long ago.

good luck,
