you realize that's an ubuntu system?  ubuntu and debian are not, i can
not stress this enough, not, binary-compatible systems.  mixing and
matching packages like this leads quickly to the road of fubar'd
systems.  you should grab the latest php5 packages from edgy or fiesty
if you want to get newer php5 packages (i'm assuming there are newer
packages available there).

if you really want the debian unstable php5 packages though, this is the
method i would recommend:

put a deb-src line pointing at unstable  in your sources.list

apt-get update
apt-get build-dep php5
apt-get source -b php5
