OK, took a crash course in systemctl. Got the service properly
enabled. However, got one odd error when I started it.

Mar 26 18:06:10 {my-FQDN} icecast[839]: ERROR: You should not run
icecast2 as root
Mar 26 18:06:10 {my-FQDN} icecast[839]: Use the changeowner directive
in the config file

The XML shows:

<changeowner>
	<user>nobody</user>
	<group>nogroup</group>
</changeowner>
