there is no backport of the mc package available, so someone has to backport it
first. There is no automatic backport process running because that's technically
not really possible and that's not how backports are intendet to work.
$ rmadison mc
mc | 3:4.8.3-10 | oldoldstable | source, amd64, armel, armhf, i386, ia64, kfreebsd-amd64, kfreebsd-i386, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390, s390x, sparc
mc | 3:4.8.13-3 | oldstable | source, amd64, arm64, armel, armhf, i386, mips, mipsel, powerpc, ppc64el, s390x
mc | 3:4.8.13-3 | oldstable-kfreebsd | source, kfreebsd-amd64, kfreebsd-i386
mc | 3:4.8.18-1 | stable | source, amd64, arm64, armel, armhf, i386, mips, mips64el, mipsel, ppc64el, s390x
mc | 3:4.8.19-1 | testing | source, amd64, arm64, armel, armhf, i386, mips, mipsel, ppc64el, s390x
mc | 3:4.8.19-1 | unstable | source, amd64, arm64, armel, armhf, hurd-i386, i386, kfreebsd-amd64, kfreebsd-i386, mips, mipsel, powerpc, ppc64el, s390x
mc | 3:4.8.19-1 | unstable-debug | source
mc | 3:4.8.19-1+b1 | testing | mips64el
mc | 3:4.8.19-1+b1 | unstable | mips64el
So 4.8.19 is available in unstable, that would be something someone could backport.
