[icecast] Helix into Icecast2 loopback

Well more specifically I want to transcode a realaudio stream into mp3 on
the same machine and on the command line only - reliably!

Following up, I managed to compile the trplayer using a substitute
__pure_virtual function compiled with extern "C" (without it the function
name was being mangled by g++) by now trplayer runs and exits without
warning, error or success... the funny thing is if I try running the
precompiled trplayer with the LD_PRELOAD=/usr/local/lib/libmemc++.so (which
I compiled with the missing __builtin_vec_new etc functions) prefix it seems
to work ok. The problem with that is I cannot pass this into vsound.

$ vsound LD_PRELOAD=/usr/local/lib/libmemc++.so trplayer
rtsp://my.stream.net:554/broadcat/live.rm 

Doesn't work because the extra preload argument isn't passed into vsound
correctly. ARG! I guess my only option left is to recompile vsound with the
preload bit included...

Otherwise I give up. And onto the next problem of mp3 streaming into
flash...

So what you're effectively wanting to do is transcode a realmedia stream 
into ogg?
