[xdebug-general] Cannot install Xdebug with Tailored Instructions on Mac Os X

I have tried to install Xdebug using the Tailored Instructions from
"find-binary.php" page.
I have followed them steb by step without any error or problem.
I have added the following string to my php.ini file:

    zend_extension =

The xdebug.so library is in the right place and the edited php.ini file
is the right one.

Unfortunately nothing appears in the output of my phpinfo() file after
restarted the Apache server and submitting it again to the "find-binary"
script shows that Xdebug is not installed, as nothing was changed.

My system is Mac OS X 10.6.8 and my PHP is included into the XAMPP
installation (full: basic & developer packages)

Can somebody give me an advice on how to solve this problem?
Below is the full output of the Tailored Instructions I have received
and followed
Thank you for your help

As part of its output it should show:

If it does not, you are using the wrong phpize. Please follow this FAQ
entry and skip the next step.

Run: ./configure

Edit /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/etc/php.ini and add the line
zend_extension =
Restart the webserver
