Any other suggestions? or should I just tell my shoutcast customers they'll have to go go elsewhere?
I don't know about backward compatibility issue(since it is 5.2.1 binary, it might not work because of incompatible linker or library), but symlink should work regardless of partition.
ln -s /usr/libexec/ld-elf.so.1 /libexec
