Thanks, but it looks to me like you've done a bit more than recompile my
packages for PowerPC.  The Debian revisions are completely different; in
fact, they match the current unstable versions, which is going to cause
some very confusing conflicts for anyone who tries to upgrade them!

(I mean for libogg and libvorbis; icecast2 is numbered correctly, but
is still unusable without the other two...)

Try to 'apt-get source -b' my packages on your build machine, maybe?

Perhaps this is because you used the unstable source packages instead of my
backports?  I haven't read the diffs yet but it seems like this is what
has happened, judging by the revision numbers.  The libshout packages in
unstable use a build system which is not yet available in woody, called
the common Debian build system (cdbs).

Did you perhaps have a 'deb-src' entry for unstable in your sources.list?

I've never tried cross-compiling, but perhaps I can look into it, if you
can't figure out an easy, repeatable way of rebuilding my source packages.
It really shouldn't be difficult, though; I can't understand why the
build-dependancies would be any different on powerpc from i386.

Testing will be greatly appreciated, thanks!  I'm glad at the prospect of
adding powerpc support to these backports.

By the way, I'm planning on preparing updated backports, probably this
weekend, of at least ices2 and icecast2.  I'm hoping to get onto a
bi-weekly update schedule for these, along with the versions I've got
in unstable.
