I just tried ldconfig again and it does point to .so.0.0.0 - so that's OK.

I've been banging on this for a while and discovered that configure does 
see my lame libraries if I use --with-cache=/dev/null, however it still 
doesn't see perl (from the configure script run with no other options):

checking for shout/shout.h... yes
checking for shout_init_connection in -lshout... yes
updating cache /dev/null
checking for lame/lame.h... yes
checking for lame_init_old in -lmp3lame... yes
checking for lame_encode_flush_nogap in -lmp3lame... yes
updating cache /dev/null
checking for vorbis/vorbisfile.h... no
Could not find libvorbisfile, vorbis support disabled
updating cache /dev/null
Note (probably harmless): No library found for -ldbm
checking for perl_construct... no
Could not find perl libraries, perl scripting disabled

If I specify --with-perl=/usr the output is slightly different but still 
doesn't work:

checking for lame/lame.h... yes
checking for lame_init_old in -lmp3lame... yes
checking for lame_encode_flush_nogap in -lmp3lame... yes
updating cache /dev/null
checking for vorbis/vorbisfile.h... no
Could not find libvorbisfile, vorbis support disabled
updating cache /dev/null
./configure: perl=/usr/bin/perl: No such file or directory
configure: error: Perl not found in the specified location

/usr/bin/perl is a link to another link which links to the real perl 
binary (don't ask me why - that's how debian has installed it):

parcstation:/home/alex/ices-0.2.2# ls -l /usr/bin/perl
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           22 Mar  8 23:54 /usr/bin/perl -> 
/etc/alternatives/perl
sparcstation:/home/alex/ices-0.2.2# ls -l /etc/alternatives/perl
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           19 Mar  8 23:54 
/etc/alternatives/perl -> /usr/bin/perl-5.005
sparcstation:/home/alex/ices-0.2.2# ls -l /usr/bin/perl-5.005
-rwxr-xr-x    3 root     root       624532 Apr 30  2000 /usr/bin/perl-5.005

One thing I thought it might be is that my debian install of perl 
provides a static perl library (libperl.a) - does ices need the dynamic 
version (libperl.so) installed? I'm not a C programmer so I may well be 
off the right track here but I thought that could be one explanation.
