Erm. I think I'll just give myself an F for error messages.
The correct error message here is 
"Incorrect usage. Usage is: ices configfile.xml". The actual error 
message you're getting is because it fails to open the config file,
then gets further, and finally gives up because there isn't a default
value for the playlist type. Anyway, no -c, just 
"ices /usr/local/etc/ices-playlist.xml"

I'll clean up the error messages here. You'll also need (you may have
it, but you didn't say...) the libshout module out of cvs. If it linked
anyway, you probably had an old libshout (for mp3 streaming) around,
it won't actually run.
