xfs_check was deprecated quite some time ago, and was removed
from the upstream repository almost a year ago, as per the xfs-check
man page:

$ dpkg --list xfsprogs |tail -1
ii  xfsprogs       3.2.0        amd64        Utilities for managing the XFS 
$ man xfs_check
Note that xfs_check is deprecated and scheduled for removal in June 2014. 
Please use xfs_repair -n instead.

And the commit in the upstream repo:

commit bfc541e77b9af46a2e3764df595620ec9824a456

    xfsprogs: remove xfs_check
    This removes xfs_check and all references to it in
    manpages.  The DIAGNOSTICS section from xfs_check(8)
    has been moved to xfs_db(8).

And so it was removed in the 3.2.1 release. debian testing is
shipping 3.2.1 already...
