you can execute pear from the command line? Could you send me the results of:

# pear list You have the following in /usr/local/etc/php.ini?

error_reporting  =  E_ALL
display_errors = On
display_startup_errors = On

and you have reset apache?

you have gone to horde/framework and done

# ./install-packages.php

With all the above we should see some errors from php or a pear problem.

Is you path set properly in php.ini.  I've had issues with what goes in 
/usr/local/share/pear and what goes in /usr/local/lib/php but it is a 
bit more clear now but some time ago, FreeBSD ports put pear in 
/usr/local/lib/php, IIRC.

good luck,
