Note that I am installing OSX Lion.

This isn't an error as such, this is exactly what it says, an Expected Failed Test Summary. You should complete installation by typing:

sudo make install

<update>

I found this excellent blog posting called Mac OS X Lion - Upgrade to PHP 5.4. I would recommend starting completely over, and following the instructions posted.

Not knowing all that you did to get thus far, I can't really comment on what went wrong and why it won't go any further.

That's the command I did which gave me this. – wesdfgfgd Dec 7 '12 at 14:05
    
Okay. Did you try to install? – Ian Atkin Dec 7 '12 at 15:23
    
Yes, I also tried install gave me the same error – wesdfgfgd Dec 7 '12 at 19:28

You can also try http://php-osx.liip.ch/ if you just need a recent PHP version.
