Sorry to say, but "you're holding it wrong", also we just don't support

The proper way to do this is to configure <security><changeowner> and
start Icecast as root. It will then bind to port 80 and drop itself to
the restricted user/group provided.
Another option is to remove the restriction of being root for binding to
ports below 1024 or giving the Icecast user necessary privileges to do so.

Please refer to your system's best practices to choose the right option.
