    I assume the source build produced a file /etc/init.d/icecast2.
    For automated service, "sudo systemctl enable icecast2".
    Formerly the distributed source also produced the file /etc/default/icecast2 which
    specified user, group, config file, and enable-state.
    Not sure if it's still that way.
