JFTR, this has been resolved on IRC, as the user posed the question
there too.
For further reference I'll summarize the result below.

There is a peculiarity in how Debian packages Icecast. The webroot is in
/usr/share/icecast2/web but as theoretically /usr could be read only,
debian symlinks the XSLT files from /etc/icecast/web.
So for further public reference:
The webroot on Debian as of today is /usr/share/icecast2/web and NOT
/etc/icecast/web, if you want icecast to be able to find your files AND
follow the debian-way then put your files in /etc/icecast/web and
symlink them from /usr/share/icecast2/web.

In general, reading error.log, after possibly increasing log level to
4/Debug and restarting icecast, helps to diagnose many problems.
