Did that and was able to compile fine. But as reported to the list 
already even by someone else some days / weeks ago ices-0.2.3-cvs 
SEEMS to stream MP3s correctly to the server and icecast2 SEEMS to 
rebroadcast the audio. But the only thing you get is silence. So 
there must be a problem somewhere.

Anyway, wouldn't it be easier to add mp3-support to ices-2 instead of 
testing and fixing the old 0.2.3?
