For icecast on Linux there really isn't anything special to do. In the 
icecast-2.2.x directory where you unpacked the tar.gz, you'll find a 
README file. Pertinent parts are:

"icecast requires the following packages :

* libxml2 -
* libxslt -
* curl - (>= version 7.10 required)
   NOTE: icecast may be compiled without curl, however this will
         disable all Directory server interaction (YP).
* ogg/vorbis - (>= version 1.0 required)"


"To build icecast on a Unix platform, perform the following :

    make install"

Do that from within the top level of the source package, such as, for 
example, "/usr/local/icecast-2.2.x". Doesn't get much simpler than that.

Check that your prerequisites are installed: /var/log/packages. They 
*should* all be there with Slackware 10 unless you did a less than total 
install of Slackware, in which case use installpkg and install them from
