Fortunately, the latest version doesn't depend on esound any longer. It 
installs some additional binaries, but I don't think that's a big issue.

But your comment gave me a different idea that might be worthwile. If both 
ports are kept (i.e., libmpcdec containing the updated library, musepack just 
the tools), the upgrade path would be easier. Ports could be upgraded without 
manual intervention.
