Getting gearman to install on Ubuntu

Getting the gearman PHP PECL package to build on Ubuntu is problematic with many unaccounted for dependency issues.

I only made a couple changes when following the instructions from JSJoy as I am running Karmic rather than Lucid I changed the apt-get sources to:

deb karmic main deb-src karmic main

My sources file was also located at /etc/apt/sources.list and not /etc/sources.list as stated in the original post from JSJoy.
