Bug#269757: apache-common: missing .info for mod_macro.so error during libapache-mod-php4 setup

Package: apache-common
Version: 1.3.31-4
Severity: important


I'm loathe to send in bug reports, but I've been asked to resubmit this as
apache-common or post to the debian-apache list (see #269738), and seeing
lists.debian.org says 'It is neither for submitting bug reports (please use
the BTS for that), nor for support requests', I'm resubmitting it.

OK, here's the short of it:
> Setting up libapache-mod-php4 (4.3.8-9) ...
> Error: mod_macro.so does not have a corresponding .info file.
> The above errors might cause apache to not work properly or start
> Please refer to the documentation on how to fix it or report it to
> Debian Apache Maling List <debian-apache@lists.debian.org> if in doubt
> on how to proceed
> dpkg: error processing libapache-mod-php4 (--configure):
>  subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 20
> Errors were encountered while processing:
>  libapache-mod-php4
> E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

I get the same error message when installing the latest apache 1.3.31-4
sarge package, *however* an error isn't reported by apache's setup. But as
per above libapache-mod-php4 does, so setup doesn't complete.

I see that as per the below posting to the debian-apache list someone's
already posted about this 'problem', but with no reply. Like he says, is it
possible I can just get or make up this .info file, or is it perhaps not a
bug, or something else?

Interestingly, despite the lack of a completed setup, my php4-based site
http://greta.electric.gen.nz/gallery/ still runs for some reason. (Yes, I've
restarted apache.)

Like with my original bug report, if I've used the wrong forum, please
