Icecast doesn't contain any encoders, at all. It just passes through
streams and deals with them on a container level (Ogg, WebM/MKV).

Are you just trying to make sure support for WebM is enabled? It's built
in and doesn't need to be enabled at build-time as we don't depend on
external libraries for that.

Also please note, that there are packages for most distributions on OBS,
see release announcement.
