Your original post should have "dbus" in the command:

 $ apt-get source dbus

All files in .pc directories are generated when the source package is
unpacked.  Please read the dpkg-source manpage.  You are unpacking the
most common source format "3.0 (quilt)".

If you unapply patches, you can safely remove files in .pc.  These files
are used to track patching state of the source tree.  So the source tree
with all the patches unapplied does not have these files under .pc.
