Bug#285877: apache-common unnecessarily depends on lynx | www-browser

Package: apache-common
Version: 1.3.33-2
Severity: normal

I would prefer that apache not depend on any browser be installed. I
don't see it as necessary to apache functioning, and would prefer to
install a server machine without that type of desktop functionality.
Perhaps a suggests dependancy instead?
