How to install PECL uploadprogress on FreeBSD

You need this PECL extension to be installed if you would like to see an upload progress indicator in Drupal. Installation is easy, but not obvious.

cd /tmp
# Substitute the latest version from http://pecl.php.net/package/uploadprogress
fetch http://pecl.php.net/get/uploadprogress-1.0.3.1.tgz
tar xf uploadprogress-1.0.3.1.tgz
cd uploadprogress-1.0.3.1
phpize
./configure
make build install
echo "extension=uploadprogress.so" >> /usr/local/etc/php/extensions.ini
cd /tmp
rm -R uploadprogress-1.0.3.1

It's pretty obvious if you do it the FreeBSD way:

cd /usr/ports/devel/pecl-uploadprogress/ && make install clean

Or use pkg:
pkg install devel/pecl-uploadprogress

Your method is hackish

Thanks, I couldn't find that port.
