[php-maint] Bug#535386: php5 force-installing apache2-mpm-prefork

Package: php5
Version: 5.2.10
Severity: critical

PHP provides CLI interface and does not require a web server. It also works
just fine with other web servers and web software which may be installed.
Nevertheless the package lists "Requires: apache2-mpm-prefork" which is
plain wrong.

The use of that tag causes apache2 to force-install which unless manual
overrides are added, breaks all other software which needs port 80 but
starts after apache2 in the boot sequence.
