Source: php-json
Version: 1.3.4-1
Severity: serious
Justification: FTBFS


There is a problem with building php-json on buildds, for instance the
i386 status is:

  BD-Problem          : php-json build-depends on:
    - php5-cli (>= 5.5.0~rc1+dfsg-1~)
    php5-cli depends on:
    - php5-common (= 5.5.11+dfsg-1)
    php5-common depends on:
    - php5-json
    php5-json depends on missing:
    - phpapi-20121212

So to rebuild php-json against the new php api, one has to rebuild it
against the new php api, so that php5-common becomes installable again,
we have a chicken and egg issue here.
