Alright, I was able to recompile ices2beta, which connects to icecast, but
now I'm getting:
WARN playlist-builtin/playlist_read Corrupt or missing data in file

When I try to play a basic playlist with 2 files (that are fine, and do
exist).  I have set the sample and nominal bitrates at 256000, which is
also the encoding for the song...

Does the bitrate of the song have to be exactly the same as in the
ices.xml?  This might present a little problem with playing songs recorded
at different bitrates, as well as variable bitrates...so I'm gurssing this
cannot be?

Thanks!
Eric
