Please remove fparser (source) from unstable. Binary packages are libfparser-
dev, libfparser-4.3, libfparser-4.3-dbg.

The Debian packages that depended on it now use the muparser library, and
fparser has become difficult to maintain with gcc-4.7. Upstream doesn't believe
in shared libraries, so we've been maintiaing that build system. It's gotten
too much to worry about for Wheezy, it's best to remove it for now.

No rdepends anymore.

Could you confirm where you're trying to get the package removed from?
You've filed the bug against release.debian.org, which implies testing,
but the above says unstable.  Then again, this:

sounds more like testing.
