apt-cache and packages.debian.org are your friends.

In woody (or, for that matter, in any Debian distro), fwbuilder has no
such dependency.  A quick and simple visit to p.d.o shows the only
non-library package it depends on is fwbuilder-iptables.  I dunno why
you have an httpd running on your machine, but it isn't because of the
fwbuilder install.
