If you want to stream to a shoutcast server, ices1 can do that
directly - there's no need to relay through an icecast 1 server. But
unless you want to be listed in the shoutcast directory, I don't know
why you need to talk to a shoutcast server. icecast 2 will also stream
MP3s to all the same client programs that shoutcast does.

icecast 1 is pretty much unsupported these days, so you might want to
try out icecast 2, currently in beta.
