"NameVirtualHost" is not configuration to be set in ports.conf

It should be set in koha-httpd.conf; and the installer would have done
it for you.

Dunno about Ubuntu, but in Debian testing, things seem to work (as in
dpkg/apt works, and no errors in koha-error_log or syslog) with
libyaz4. (How do I know if koha has a problem?)

Guess this is a misdefined dependency, and there is something about this
in http://bugs.koha-community.org/

This should not be a problem - memcached is used only be certain
flavours of apache - especially on Debian (should be that way in Ubuntu

For example, for me, "aptitude install apache2" installed
apache2-mpm-worker, and that would use memcache; but not by other
flavours of the apache server - like apache2-mpm-prefork.

See above

Note for others:-

I would certainly appreciate if the dependencies were grouped by
"absolutely required"; and "X is required if you enable (or want
functionality kX) kX", where kX is an option within Koha.
