That's interesting. It's hanging inside the timing module of
libshout, presumably in the select call (I don't have the source here
to check). It's being given a reasonable value (231 milliseconds), but
it never returns.

I'm not sure what could be going wrong here (maybe someone with more
freebsd knowledge could comment). You might try rebuilding libshout
without thread support (--disable-pthread, I think).

Otherwise, maybe replace the select call in timing.c with something

if (sleeper.tv_sec)
