I guess I was too terse in my explanation. See below.

Yes and that's what I actually meant. Install the latest beta(!) version
from our repositories and then replace the binary with what you built
from source. If necessary also webroot and adminroot contents. You could
also for style points align the PREFIX with the one from the package and
just make install over things.

There are many ways to get to a usable development setup.

Please note that this is starting to outgrow the basic scope of this
mailing list. If you want to run latest git and provide feedback and
patches, then the icecast-dev mailing list is better suited.
