How come there is no "make install" after you "configure" and "make" PHP APC?

because they are modules...read line 26...

use APC-3.1.9 is last stable version at this moment

@BognarB is indeed correct, 3.1.9 is the latest stable version: http://pecl.php.net/package/APC. Thanks for the Gist, it worked a treat.

Works on 10.9 Mavericks (with Xcode 5) too.

pcre needs to be 8.33

I had to use the following to get APC installed on my system:

[path_to_php]/bin/phpize && CFLAGS=-m32 CPPFLAGS=-m32 CCASFLAGS=-m32 ./configure --with-php-config=[path_to_php]/bin/php-config && make

/usr/include/php/ext/pcre/php_pcre.h:29:10: fatal error: 'pcre.h' file not found

Latest PCRE is 8.35. Change lines 3-5 to read:

curl -O ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk//pub/software/programming/pcre/pcre-8.35.tar.gz
tar -xvzf pcre-8.35.tar.gz
cd pcre-8.35
