Convert recognizes the image formats listed in ImageMagick(1).
o ICO *r-- Microsoft icon
o ICON *r-- Microsoft icon
(this is imagemagick_126.96.36.199-1 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.
