hmmmm..So you don't use -l for static libs (I really know next to nothing
about this stuff).  I'lll give it a shot.

Oh yes.  If I'm sure of nothing else, I'm sure of this.  Since I'm running
as a user on someone else's system, it complains a lot if I don't (can't
open /usr/local/icecast bla bla bla).  And the XML is displayed by the
server upon startup, or in my case, is written to nohup.out.

Lets hope it's the libs then.

Cool.  This is mainly to establish that the server works.  I'll probably
try ices on my own system, but the server needs to be where the bandwidth
is.  Where is ices2 living, is it icecast CVS or bitkeeper?
