In fact dependencies for mediawiki are right.
The problem comes from the fact that there is no php4 package for cherokee in 

Do you use the cherokee package from debian and can it use php4?
If so then one of the cherokee package should tell it, and php4's dependencies 
should be corrected to include it

If not and php4 support in cherokee is more tricky/depends on an other piece 
of software then it should be packaged.

Ok, this should be include as a cherokee.conf in next package.

It does :)

Everyone is crying out for peace, yes

I don't want no peace
