If you installed libshout in a non-standard place with --prefix then you
need to tell the configure script where to find it, via PKG_CONFIG_PATH

Assuming libshout was built and installed with --prefix=/home/Sledge

then try

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/home/Sledge/lib/pkgconfig

then re-run autogen.sh for ices
