First, make sure you remove config.cache
Second, don't bother with the --with-libshout option at all - ices
should find it automatically.
Third, you want --with-libshout=/usr

--with-x options that take an argument usually expect the same thing you
would use as --prefix when building it. This is standard autoconf

So when you say --with-libshout=/usr/include, the configure script
searches /usr/include/include/shout/shout.h and

Fourth, you don't need libshout at all, ices comes with it.

Same thing.
First, don't specify any argument.
Second, try only --with-lame
Third, if you really want to be precise, use --with-lame=/usr
Those other options (-includes, -libraries) are usually not needed
except in unusual installations.

I think you just need a little more experience building from source.
Unfortunately there is no deb package for ices. I've been hoping to make
the linked in libraries loadable at runtime (dlopen'd) if I get the time
- this might make ices suitable for packaging with debian...
