[icecast] New CURL version dependency

I just checked IceCast out from CVS in an attempt to compile it again (I
went through the whole build cycle just a couple of months ago), and I
came across this error when I was building it:

<p>source='yp.c' object='yp.o' libtool=no \
depfile='.deps/yp.Po' tmpdepfile='.deps/yp.TPo' \

<p>After a quick cvs log check, I found this last change to yp.c:

- new curl option (CURLOPT_NOSIGNAL) which prevents curl from using
signals when
  timeouts are hit.  This new option needs curl 7.10 at least.

My question is simply this, should IceCast really depending on a release
of curl that is so brand new? I'm running a fresh install of RedHat 9.0,
and it's only got curl 7.9.8-5 installed.

I realize this IS cvs, and it IS expected to fluctuate. However, if/when
that change gets put into a release, it will be unusable by the majority
of people because of that dependency (Which, as far as I could find, is
actually undocumented as yet).

This isn't so much a complaint as simply a "Is that really such a good

Just my $0.02
