On the Shoutcast website it is listed as

SHOUTcast FreeBSD 3.x/4.x server v1.7.1

c643704-b# file sc_serv
sc_serv: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (FreeBSD), dynamicall
y linked (uses shared libs), stripped
c643704-b# ./sc_serv
./sc_serv: Exec format error. Wrong Architecture.

I tried the linux libc version but that seg faulted.

I do have the compatability stuff compiled into the kernel. I can send
my config file upon request.
