Unless I'm doing something very wrong, which is probably the case, the
messages files have no strings containing `icecast'.

Well, here's something that's telling--the output from running the
startup script /etc/init.d/icecast2 in a subshell:

+ PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin
+ DAEMON=/usr/bin/icecast2
+ NAME=icecast2
+ DESC=icecast2
+ test -x /usr/bin/icecast2
+ exit 0

Failed the test for existence? How's that?

+ PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin
+ DAEMON=/usr/bin/icecast2
+ NAME=icecast2
+ DESC=icecast2
+ test -x /usr/bin/icecast2
+ exit 0
