Yes, they are all there. Should be relatively straight forward to find
them if you start browsing from http://debian.jones.dk/pkg/icecast/
I guess you could also use the following APT line, but frankly I haven't
tested for some time if deb-src works properly on my site:
deb-src http://debian.jones.dk/ etch icecast
Only backports not part of the icecast pool is the build tools available
from the src pool:
deb-src http://debian.jones.dk/ etch src
or both of them together:
deb-src http://debian.jones.dk/ etch src icecast

...which means you don't really know what you've got: Imagine
backporting ffmpeg, backporting some packages against that ffmpeg, and
then update the ffmpeg backport. Is "binNMUs" then done automagically?
Yes, the problem is similar to main Debian (all packages are built
against unstable, not rebuilt when entering testing), but bpo has less
eyeballs, I suspect.
Oh - and I suspect my example with ffmpeg is a quite valid one: Some
cases of undefined img_convert occur at runtime (try install freej in
Lenny and then update libav* to the ones from debian-multimedia.org ).
