Because this comes up when you Google looking for how to install the Memcached extension on CentOS. It may be easiest for you to just use the package manager command:

yum install php56w-pecl-memcached.i386

In case you're getting a broken dependency (because you, like me, have a different version of PHP installed than the one that ships with your repository) use --skip-broken to get it to work. Be careful when using this option since it might not be the PHP version in your case, look carefully before skipping broken packages.

if you have this error running "pecl install memcached"

running: phpize
sh: phpize: command not found
ERROR: `phpize' failed

then you can install:
yum install php-devel
