Setting up xdebug for PHP 7 in Acquia DevDesktop

The Acquia DevDesktop help page says:

The PHP 7 version currently included with Acquia Dev Desktop does not currently include Xdebug. You can download an updated version of Xdebug here .

Here are the actual steps I used. YMMV.

    Followed the same steps but it did not work for me. Neither does the xdebug appear in php -m list.
    I am using MAC Sierra and Acquia Dev Desktop.

    Are you able to advise. Thanks

    If you get the error:

    Cannot find autoconf. Please check your autoconf installation and the
    $PHP_AUTOCONF environment variable. Then, rerun this script.

    on Mac, run homebrew install autoconf to resolve.
