Package: libapache-mod-php5
Version: 5.2.0-10+lenny1

On lenny AMD64 (freshly dist-upgraded from etch), libapache-mod-php5 fails to install with the following error:

# apt-get install libapache-mod-php5
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies.
  libapache-mod-php5: Depends: php5-common (= 5.2.0-10+lenny1) but 5.2.5-3+lenny1 is to be installed
E: Broken packages

It seems the dependencies are broken for this package - I have php5-common installed, but it is the wrong version for this dependency.

Apologies if this is an inappropriately written bug report - its my first!  Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated.
