We already have everything in the README.Debian:

 (...)in particular, you need the following to apply to the
 /usr/share/horde3/ hierarchy:

    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride Limit

  For the webserver you also need to tell where your horde3 installation
  is. This done by adding an alias to the apache configuration like

      Alias /horde3 /usr/share/horde3
