I see two places in the IceCat build scripts related to disabling

(1) In about:config, IceCat has the following default settings, which
    are the opposite of how they are set in upstream Firefox:

      media.peerconnection.enabled                      false
      media.peerconnection.ice.default_address_only     true


(2) The build scripts here apparently arrange to pass "--disable-webrtc"
    to IceCat's configure script for all three supported platforms:


    I guess this probably means that the pre-compiled binaries for IceCat
    are compiled with WebRTC disabled, but I'm not sure.

To reverse (1), simply visit "about:config" in IceCat, search for those
settings, and flip their values.  If that isn't sufficient to get WebRTC
working, then you probably need to address (2), which you could do by
either compiling IceCat from source code, or installing GNU Guix and
using its IceCat package.
