Because you are only checking the iX86 version of your package.

libgcc1 (>= 1:3.3.4-1) [hppa]
    GCC support library
libgcc1 (>= 1:3.4.1-3) [arm, i386]
libgcc1 (>= 1:4.0.0-7) [not arm, hppa, i386]

libgcc1 is now available in a new version, built from gcc-4 and a couple
of autobuilders  have built your package /after/ that.
