Or maybe have YP disabled by default and have it complain as above if you
enable it with a configure option?

It's just that I can see a whole bunch of "I can't get YP stuff to work"
messages replacing the "WTF is CURLOPT_NOSIGNAL" messages we're currently
getting.  Having configure quietly disable YP support and go about its
business isn't going to make it any easier for the casual user to figure
out what the problem is, and is only going to make what seems to be a
common issue harder for us to diagnose (at least now it's easy).

I guess whether we opt for YP support to be enabled or disabled by default
will be a matter of deciding how mainstream a function it is.  Personally,
I'd think that most icecast users will want to use it, so I'd vote for it
being enabled by default.  But I'm not too bothered either way.
