Failing that, there is a package available:
jkoenig@note:~$ apt-cache show xmms-audiofile
Package: xmms-audiofile
Description: xmms plugin for various audio formats using audiofile lib
 This plug-in for XMMS allows users to play any file which the Audio
 File Library can read.  Common formats such as AIFF, AIFF-C, WAVE, and
 NeXT/Sun .snd/.au are supported

But it's not available in the standard Debian repository.

jkoenig@note:~$ apt-cache policy xmms-audiofile
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 0.1-1
  Version Table:
     0.1-1 0
        500 http://www.rarewares.org ./ Packages

So you will need to add this to your sources.list:

jkoenig@note:~$ grep rarewares /etc/apt/sources.list 
#deb http://rarewares.hydrogenaudio.org/xmixahlx/debian/ ./
<note> I don't know what that is commented out. It might be that
rarewares moved servers and I just commented it out and added the
following line rather that removing it </note>
deb http://www.rarewares.org/debian/packages/unstable ./
