I have icecast 2.3.2 on Gentoo and on Fedora and I can connect it using IPv6.

However I have privoxy on Debian/testing and it stopped to accept IPv4
connections. I suspect something has changed in Debian libc because listening
on [::] does not create multi-family socket anymore. You can get listening
socket on IPv4, or IPv6, but not both. Other servers I have in Debian creates
separate socket of IPv4 and for IPv6 to serve both protocols.

I had not enough time/interrest to investigate it more deeply, so I would be
happy if you found some reason.
