Extension_dir on you phpinfo show '/', it should show where your extensions are
installed. My recommendation:

1. Grab php 5.1 RC3+ (snaps.php.net) and ./configure, make, make install. Here
are my options:
./configure' '--prefix=/usr' '--mandir=/usr/share/man'
'--infodir=/usr/share/info' '--with-apxs' '--enable-cli' '--with-zlib-dir=/usr'
'--with-xml' '--enable-exif' '--enable-ftp' '--enable-mbstring'
'--enable-sockets' '--with-config-file-path=/etc' '--with-mysql-sock=/tmp'
'--with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql' '--with-gd' '--with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local/lib'
'--with-png-dir=/usr/local/lib' '--enable-gd-native-ttf'
'--with-freetype-dir=/usr/local/lib' '--enable-simplexml'
'--with-xsl=/usr/local/lib' '--enable-soap' '--with-iconv=/usr' '--enable-pdo'
'--with-pdo-sqlite' '--with-pdo-mysql=/usr/local/mysql'

The prefix /usr overwrite the mac osx default php installation, which means that
if Apple has the bad idea to upgrade the php version they ship, it might be
overwritten, so be prepared to make install again.

2. Get xdebug2 tar.gz from xdebug.org

3. tar xzvf xdebug2...

4. phpize, ./configure, make

5. copy modules/xdebug.so where your extensions are expected in your php.ini
config. Beware, cli apps can use php-cli.ini if it exists. php.ini should be in
/etc if you use my configure options above. cli is not threaded, while if you
use apache2, it is threaded. If you use Macosx default apache 1.3 installation
(which is fine imo), simply add this to php.ini:

extension_dir = /where/your/.so/are/located/
zend_extension = xdebug.so

I hope I am understandable, I just had a nice bottle of red wine from Burgundy
and enjoyed it.

Good luck,
