Correction - This is actually set in the <paths> section of 
the icecast.xml file, like so:

<!-- Note that if <chroot> is turned on below, these
      paths must both be relative to the new root,
      not the original root -->

      <logdir>/var/log/icecast</logdir>
      <webroot>/usr/share/icecast/web</webroot>
      <adminroot>/usr/share/icecast/admin</adminroot>
      <pidfile>/var/run/icecast/icecast.pid</pidfile>
