I use Odoo 8, I had installed hr_recruitment module but it also install survey and website module. I can installed hr_recruitment without survey and website module if I modified __openerp__.py (remove survey in depends). But I don't want to modify the original codes.

So, how can I properly modified the __openerp__.py so that I can install hr_recruitment without  survey and website module.

You couldn't do it because in Odoo modules __openerp__.py are not modifiable by extension. The depends of a module contains the must have modules dependencies, otherwise you will see errors
