from convert(1)
  Convert recognizes the image formats listed in ImageMagick(1).

from ImageMagick(1)
        o  ICO       *r-- Microsoft icon
        o  ICON      *r-- Microsoft icon

(this is imagemagick_5.4.4.5-1 on woody.)

Don't know how well it works. There's also a package called
"xpm2wico" which does XPM->favicon, but is IME not so good, and
ppmtowinicon in the "netpbm" package which works beautifully.
There's lots of ways to do it.
