[icecast] Trouble with LiveIce

Hi Folks,

  I have fixed the problem I was experiencing with LiveIce.  The boring
solution is that I was using lame 3.13.  I have no idea why.  So LiveIce
was barfing when it was trying to feed my lame the -r tag.  That tag
didn't exist back then.
  The more interesting part is that in encoders.c, exec_encoder_lame3 will
turn off a lot of output that was going to the console.  On line 456,
there is an if-block that begins if(g_conf.debug<10)...then turn off
stuff.  Now, when I got rid of this line, I could see all the barf that
lame was giving me.
  So if others are having problems with LiveIce, I suggest a similar
approach.

Cheers,

-Spiegel
