I don't know of any distribution that doesn't come with precompiled
packages of these tools. For Icecast2 to compile you need autoconf,
automake, libtool, libxml and/or libxml2 and libogg. Search your
installation CDs or check your dist's website, google for it ... those
shouldn't be hard to find, as they are very common tools and libraries.

Aeh no. The HACKME files is right, you need to check out those from the
src directory.

If some other program also needs them to compile, it will tell you in
its HACKME file. It will also tell you where to put them, so if another
programs wants them checked out under the abcdef directory, do it there
or copy over from icecast2.
