You're very close, you just have to specify the XPORT engine when creating the dataset, as well as when you're reading it.
libname newfile XPORT 'c:\temp\pcfile.xpt';
(I changed the file extension from .dat, just to make it more obvious what this is when it appears in a directory list of files, but SAS doesn't care.)
