on the core dump: could you compile it in debug mode, and send me the 
backtrace of where it dumps?

for buffer underrun: are you sure you're running darkice as root?

for vorbis encode init error: the vorbis library won't initialize. are 
you sure your parameters for the vorbis stream are sensible? (e.g. 24 
kb/s streams don't work at 44.1 kHz, that sort of thing)
