[Bug 460692] [NEW] Missing dependency for apache2 init script

Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: apache2.2-common


It seems this package is missing a dependency on psmisc. From the init

nafallo at wizard:~$ grep killall /etc/init.d/apache2 
	killall htcacheclean 2> /dev/null || echo ...not running

If killall doesn't exist on the server and you have mod_disk_cache
enabled this fails silently, making sure you will run an additional
htcacheclean daemon every time you restart (or even reload?) apache.

Rather than adding a dependency I would suggest we swap the use of
killall to pkill (found in procps, a packages with Priority: required).

Thanks, /N
