 Readme tells me this 
To build icecast on a Unix platform, perform the following :

Run
   ./configure
   make
   make install

This is the typical procedure if you download the tar file. If you retrieve the code from subversion or want to rebuild the configure then run autogen.sh instead of the configure above. Most people do not need to run autogen.sh

A sample config file will be placed in /usr/local/etc (on UNIX) or in the current working directory (on Win32) and is called icecast.xml

Documentation for icecast is available in the doc directory, by viewing doc/index.html in a browser.

You will find the answer here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-newbie-8/icecast-and-xslt-config-problem-205105/

Basically sudo apt-get install libxslt-dev.

As a tip, when you install things like this, always read the README. It is usually in the source directory of the tarball once uncompressed.

Still in building source yourself, when it fails it is usually because it is missing a dependency. Spot the dependency needed, install it with sudo apt-get install *dependency* and try build again.

Also, please use some formatting so people can read your post.
