You're right. I just forget "e.g." :)

Without dynamic dependencies, we could imagine a post-install script that interactively helps admin to install required dependencies, copy config files to the right places, init database... but it looks immoderate for now

My point is that the web server <-> PHP binding is not a dependency of
the application. Just like the X server is not a dependency of KDE.
I don't think we need to provide a post-install script either. It's not
like the admin doesn't need to customize things anyway, i.e. to specify
how the PHP app is hooked into the vhost mapping etc. We don't need to
do anything like that for Perl or Python based frameworks, so why should
we have to do it for PHP?

We don't have an intrusive package manager like Debian, so I totally agree with you. But I think it is appreciable to have an application that works out of the box. Because I don't use Apache (but nginx or lighttpd), I try to find solutions to not have useless dependencies installed. For now, a binary bulk does not fulfil.
