Justification: Incompatible licences leading to undistributable binaries
it seems that libapache2-mod-php4 links against both GDBM (which is
GPL-licenced) and Apache (which is ASL-licenced). According to the FSF,
who are also copyright holders for GDBM, the ASL and GPL are not compatible.
In addition to this, there is an licence incompatibility when linking
with libssl and GDBM which I assume you are aware of.
To top this off, I believe the PHP licence itself is GPL incompatible.
Please stop linking against GDBM.
