The PHP3 packages from woody seem to work fine. If you upgrade them,
though, you'll get an upgraded apache, too. And apache-ssl from woody
conflicts with ssh, so if you need ssh, you can't have apache-ssl for now.
You could compile the potato version of PHP against postgres 7. That's what
I did. Just add a sources line to your sources.list.

I don't know. I do know that you can install the php3-pgsql package without
having PostgreSQL installed, so apparently there is no dependency.
