[Pkg-mediawiki-devel] Bug#426560: mediawiki1.7-math: texvc should be installable without all those deps

Package: mediawiki1.7-math
Severity: normal

I'd like to install texvc for use with a wiki system other than
MediaWiki.  I've done this in the past, building texvc from source.

However, looking for a Debian package with texvc I found this one.  I
tried to install it but realized that it depends on MediaWiki, which
itself depends on things like php5 and apache2.

Either Texvc should be moved to a separate package that only depends on
the few things that it really depends on or the depends for this package
should be fixed so that Texvc is installable without dragging everything
in.  Texvc obviously does *not* require things like php5 or Apache to do
its work.
