icecast has never had AAC support in. Don't confuse the ability to pass 
through content unmodified with parsing formats for timing, decoding or 
encoding. The latter is the issue with AAC.  Without encoding or timing 
support then you could ask why use libshout at all?

libshout does not have a maintainer so if you wish to step up and tackle 
these issues then feel free to do so.
