AFAIK, no there isn't.

You can have Icecast appear on separate ports, but it will be the same 
server.  but you can alias calls on one port to point to a different mount 

As an example, I'm migrating streams which used to appear on several 
shoutcast-compatible servers onto a single Icecast2 server.  I've avoided 
having to change a bunch of m3u files and disrupt people's bookmarks by 
setting up a listen socket on each of the old ports and aliasing requests 
for "/" on that particular port to the mountpoint of the stream which used 
to live on that port.  So for example, acbradio.org:8000/cafe 
acbradio.org:7464/cafe and acbradio.org:7464/ all result in the same
