VICE is a Versatile Commodore Emulator, i.e. a program that runs on a Unix, Win32, MS-DOS, Mac OS X, Amiga, or RiscOS machine and executes programs intended for the old 8-bit Commodore computers. The current version emulates the C64, C128, VIC20, Plus4, C64-DTV, all the PETmodels, and the CBM-II (aka C610).
WebPack is a shell script for automatically packing Web sites by shrinking them without affecting their functionality or appearance. It is also useful for losslessly shrinking image collections and locating corrupt files. It works by stripping unnecessary information and optimizing the compression of images, and by removing comments/whitespace from HTML, using readily-available tools.

Webpack was never intended to operate in-place, it is designed to create a compressed copy of your website, and this compressed version is the one you upload. What you saw is an intentional safety check to stop you compressing (and possibly corrupting) your "source" website.
The -f option forces overwriting of existing files in the destination directory.
Re: Is webpack dead?
Not quite, just having issues with webhosting - mail to email@example.com will work (have updated freshmeat settings).
