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

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.
