It turns out Debian Wheezy has no haxe package as it has no package maintainer. Neko is just a VM, not a compiler. So until haxe gets a package maintainer, you'll need to install it manually.

Debian's repository no longer has a haxe package. Instead it has a package for neko, which is an interpreter for multiple languages, including haxe. However, the haxe program itself is still required to build some test cases in the suite. Ideally someone would add neko support to the scripts that build and run the haxe test cases, so that more systems can run them.
