yes indeed. often you can successfully compile and install on os x things
that run on freebsd or linux. but port configuration is often substantially
different and not entirely handled by autoconf. (even compiling php requires
some tricks.) in these cases i refer to google because people smarter than
me (one assumes, everything you read on the internet being true, of course)
often blog their recipe if the find one. but i found nothing for this
problem. that's why i asked here.

at this stage, i installed the fink package libicu36-dev-3.6.0-5, supposedly
libicu headers and it seems to have done something, i'm not entirely sure
exactly what. and i'm not convinced that the headers are for the same libicu
version that's in /usr/lib.

but somehow, though i'm not clear how one configures pecl source, i managed
to get pecl to compile and install the extension.

anyway, in the cli the command collator_create( 'en_US' ); did not provoke
an error, so maybe that works.

but if i add extension=intl.so to php.ini and restart apache, php says: PHP
Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library

so we're not done yet. if i get it done, maybe i'll blog my recipe.

freebsd, otoh, has a port for pecl-intl so it was trivial to install.
