[icecast] Some questions and problems about setting up Icecast2

        I've finally decided to take the plunge and set up an Icecast 2 server on my Linux 2.4.18 machine.  After asking in #vorbis, I was told that I need ice2 and ices.  From what I understand, ice2 is the Icecast2 server, while ices is a program that sends it data to push to its clients.  Am I right?
        After downloading both modules, the first problem I've ran into is executing the autogen.sh scripts on both of them.  Here's what happens when I run the script in ice2:

[pwhite at pwhite ice2]$ ./autogen.sh
I am going to run ./configure with no arguments - if you wish
to pass any to it, please specify them on the ./autogen.sh command line.

        Here is some more information:

autoconf 2.53
automake 1.6.2
aclocal 1.6.2
I don't know what other software versions you may be interested in, but it's a RedHat 7.3 distribution.

Furthermore, I want the Icecast 2 running on the server, but my friend will be doing the actual streaming from his Windows machine through Winamp, so I don't suppose I need any icecast client installed.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
