I just went through this, and could not find a package for ices. In the 
end I downloaded and compiled DarkIce (once the development libraries 
were installed)   http://code.google.com/p/darkice

Only thing that caught me out, was that you need to specify the output 
device in the DarkIce config file as an icecast2 server, or you get a 
message about opening underlying sink error.

Now happily streaming mp3 data.

Good Luck
