Done in latest patches (not yet integrated): http://bugs.debian.org/708551#57.

The logic is:
- if this is a PECL, then it should build-depend on php5-dev and dh-php5
- if this is a PECL, then it should have a "--with php5" in debian/rules
- if you want to directly use php5{en,dis}mod, then you need to override lintian
