OK, fixed most of the hassles. But for some reason xmms on the client machine won't just play the stream using the URL, I've got to open http://192.168.1.102:8000/mp3.m3u using links, then pass it to xmms when it prompts me. No biggie. Also found out you can rebuild the song list at any time, at least without the -r (randomize) option, and it will update on-the-fly. It might work with -r too, just haven't tested it yet. Well, without further ado, here's my rc.icecast script:

#!/usr/pkg/bin/bash
# icecast streaming startup script
if [ "$1" = "start" ]; then
 HOSTNAME=`hostname`
 HOSTIP=`gethostip -d $HOSTNAME`
 SOURCEPASS=`head -c 8 /dev/urandom | md5sum | head -c 8`
