Symfony - Propel

I installed Symfony inside one of my domain folders OK using PEAR (php5 version that Dreamhost supplies: /usr/local/php5/bin/pear)

I noticed that the propel package and probably criteria too were not installed… They are usually put into /usr/lib/php/symfony/vendor

So, I’m assuming there’s a work around for this being on a shared hosting server right?

Has anyone successfully installed Symfony on Dreamhost with propel and criteria?

If so, how did you do it?
