[php-maint] pkg-php-tools / php5-json - circular dependency?

I don't think you depend on any specific version on these packages, meaning
you can build pkg-php-tools with any PHP version you have (not mentioning
it's actually a perl script).

I suggest you backport pkg-php-tools first, with the original wheezy json,
and than continue for PHP and JSON.

I'm CCing David to explain the dependency of pkg-php-tools in JSON, I don't
see an obvious reason for that, and might just be missing something.
