I have a similar problem after removal of php5-tidy:

$ php5
PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 
'/usr/lib/php5/20090626+lfs/tidy.so' - /usr/lib/php5/20090626+lfs/tidy.so: 
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory in Unknown on line 0

The obvious solution is to re-install php5-tidy.

But I wonder why there's no dependency between php5 and php5-tidy ?

I agree that the above message is just a warning (but a troublesome one as 
this missing lib will trigger a mail each time /etc/cron.d/php5 is run), but 
php5 should at least recommends php5-tidy.

All the best
