 ICE is the Inter Client Exchange protocol, part of X11 (XFree),
 ... actually it is a framework for providing client exchange
 protocols, it allows to register new protocols, messages, callbacks, etc.
 
 i am surprised that libtool "wants" it.
 
 the shared lib for ICE (based on glibc 2.1, which is probably to new
 for you, check out, which .rpm set works for your SUSE) is in 
 XFree86-libs-3.3.3.1-49.i386.rpm, the static library
 is in XFree86-devel-3.3.3.1-49.i386.rpm
