Well, you could do a few things.  You could decode your MP3 to wav or PCM
and use the stdin input of ices2 to encode it to ogg for your stream.  Or
you could set ices 0.2.3 going on another mountpoint and use stream
transcoder (http://transcoder.sf.net) to listen and transcode it to ogg.
This latter one may seem a bit clumsy, but it may be more convenient to
implement, depending on exactly what you want to do.  There's probably
other solutions, but that's all I can think of at 2am and should be enough
to get you started.
