It's being upgraded, which means it is already installed on your system.
Try 'aptitude why apache2.2-bin', maybe it will shed some light on why
it is installed.

Offtopic discussions among Debian users and developers:

Ya I just did that and it was installed because of gnome .... I don't remember installing gnome ... when I installed my laptop, I chose no WM nor X as I wanted to learn how to do it *the debian way* using apt-get/aptitude. I went from X to fluxbox and gnome wasn't an inbetween. I imagine some deps where installed with other packages but upon checking .... I have a full gnome install and I *know* I didn't install it, so I am left scratching my head.

root@Blackdragon:~# aptitude why apache2.2-bin
i   gnome                     Depends gnome-desktop-environment (= 1:2.30+7)
i A gnome-desktop-environment Depends gnome-user-share (>= 2.30)            
i A gnome-user-share          Depends apache2.2-bin
