While I agree, lamp setups [1] tend to be installed with with Apache in
the install line, which aiui would pull in the libapache* dependancies?

Another thought I forgot to include in the original email which I
wondered about:

Does this mean when Apache (et al) fails to install because theres
already an httpd running the user should know all the packaging better,
or its a bug elseware ...?

[1] In my very limited experience ...
