As you've found out, you do need a lot of stuff on modern systems (you
didn't say what OS you were using, though) to get a working resolver.

Personally, though I've used chroot, I haven't used it with anything
that requires a resolver (e.g. relays, yp), so I'm not certain exactly
what you need.

You should be able to find some info with a web search - just don't
make it icecast-specific, since there's nothing icecast-specific about
getting your name resolver working inside chroot..
