I use cherokee server and when i install php, lighttpd install with him.
I force variable AUTO_INSTALL_DEPS to "no" into tazpkg.conf for install php.
I suggests modify code for install lighttpd if never web server was installed (apache, cherokee ...) or create php-cherokee package.
I create receipt for php-cherokee but the script in /etc/init.d is incorrect (unknow -k parameter)
I search a correct param for run and stop daemon.
