to compile apps to use curl, you need the runtime and development
packages.  It's most likely not finding the headers files required, try
installing the curl-devel package as well.

curl is only used for the YP directory support, if there were a linker
issue then you would see different problems.   I would check the icecast
log first for odd errors, and verify that the webroot has the status.xsl
file installed and is readable.
