I have two possible bugs of too much dependencies:

1) When I want to install php5, apt install me apache2 packages. I
think that php5 should depend on www-server not specifically on

The issue is that php5 depends on "libapache2-mod-php5 |
libapache2-mod-php5filter | php5-cgi"; i.e., it does allow you to do
this, but *by default* will depend on the apache versions.

If you wish to use PHP5 with cherokee, you need to explicitly select
php5-cgi, like so:

apt-get install cherokee php5-cgi

That should fix your problem.
