I believe (I haven't tried it myself, but I know lots of people are
successfully running icecast on ipv6) you just have to tell icecast to
bind to an IPv6 address.

You can do this with the appropriate thing in <bind-address> (I think
you need "::" to just listen on all v6 interfaces?).

You should be able to use an ipv6 address in ices2 to connect to
icecast2, but I'm less sure if people are doing this, and again, I
haven't tested it myself.
