Could this be a permissions problem? Are you running icecast as root
(not recommended) or in a chroot jail? Do the directories where you've
configured the logfiles to be created exists and can they be written by
the user you're running icecast as?
Hope this is useful.

The servers are both running Debian sarge and are configured identically for icecast minus the bind address and the hostnames. When I try and start the icecast server, using the same init script and running the same version of icecast (2.3.1), the process simply doesn't start. It prints nothing to stdout and nothing to the logfile.

I am setting up the icecast stream to run at port 8000. Looking at nmap the only difference that seems to possibly being affecting icecast is that I do not have port 111 open for portmapping, because portmapping can not work with our firewall rules, I can however open more ports in advance if I know where they will be getting mapped to.
