I can't speak for ices2 - haven't used it yet.  Lame's vorbis support is
outdated, use oggenc instead.  The libshout for icecast2 comes with a small
example program which streams stdin to icecast2.  So you could do:

mpg123 |oggenc |example

I'd recommend using oggenc from CVS and use its raw options as you can run
into problems with wav length headers.

Hope this makes some form of sense.

Oh and the server, port, etc. for your server are hard-coded into example.c
so you have to edit that before you start streaming.
