You can either manually puzzle up the packaging. The source package can
be found alongside every package repository:


It's actually identical for all Debian and Ubuntu releases.

The other option is to build from source:


so basically:

git clone --recursive https://git.xiph.org/icecast-server.git
cd icecast-server

Importantly: omit the "make install" and just manually replace the
binary - and if necessary the web and admin directories and the config.xml.
Basically "sudo cp src/icecast /usr/bin/icecast2" on a debian-ish system.
