compiling freeamp

Actually, it's a fairly simple problem to fix--playing a .pls file. All it
is (if you've looked at one) is a textfile that goes something like this:


That's it, really. So if you want to play a stream in mpg123, just edit
out everything except the URL and invoke mpg123 as

mpg123 -@ filename

Works fine like that. Of course, if you *can* use freeamp, it's easier and
you can just play the pls files, and you can fast-foward and rewind
.mp3's, but it does take a bit longer to load...not much, mind you, but a
bit longer.
