I don't know any specific software to do ape->flac conversion but,
since you're using xmms already, you could decompress ape to wav using
'Disk Writer Plugin' (Options -> Preferences -> Audio I/O plugins ->
Output plugin). Just select it, configure a path and start playback. I
guess it's installed with xmms by default.

Hope that helps,
