What strange version of PHP are you using?  Or are you installing the
"suggested" and "recommends" as well?

apt-cache depends php4
 |Depends: libapache-mod-php4
 |Depends: libapache2-mod-php4
  Depends: caudium-php4
  Depends: php4-common

apt-cache depends php3
  Depends: libc6
  Depends: libgdbm3
  Depends: libpam0g
  Depends: zlib1g
  Depends: mime-support
  Depends: apache-common
  Suggests: <php3-database>
  Suggests: php3-gd
  Suggests: php3-doc
  Suggests: php3-cgi
  Conflicts: php3-doc
  Conflicts: php4

Of course, this is the "years old", not packaged by me version in

However, even Stable doesn't appear to have this issue:
