Using Vorbis from CVS is not a good idea except perhaps just prior to a
release.  there are times when its functionality is severely reduced or it
just plain doesn't compile.  I'd suggest going with stock standard RC3
release tarballs until we hear there's something functional and improved to
grab from CVS, or we hear that icecast CVS requires the use of Vorbis CVS
for some new feature or something.  The last thing that people who wish to
simply run a server want to see is a batch of problems caused by unstable
Vorbis code.

Note that I wrote up this file almost 12 months ago, and parameters may
have been added since I wrote it.
