Check out http://rarewares.hydrogenaudio.org/debian.html for Debian
audio stuff [1].  In particular, the package
musepack-decoder-{386|k7|686} provides mppdec, to convert mpc to wav.
The package xmms-musepack gives you a musepack plugin for xmms.

As always with lossy compression, avoid transcoding from one lossy
codec to another (e.g. mpc to mp3) when possible:  The result will
combine artifacts from both compression formats.
