package(s) in the dependency tree forced this?

You can try "rpm -q --whatrequires php5" from within the build chroot.

Be aware that this one only returns packages which require php5 directly - but not its provides or files.

Just compare the list returned from command above with dependency conflicts you get trying to remove the package (may not be case of this particular package, though)
