AFAIK the PEAR install on windows does not really support compilation
yet, and I will definitely not keep updating the .DSP as that is for the
old buildsystem. So your option is using a precompiled .dll.

The Xdebug documentation describes this clearly, you need to use
zend_extension_ts on Windows:

If it's loaded correctly, use phpinfo() to see whether Xdebug shows up
next to the Zend logo in the first block.
