1) Most of the icons you want are already in ooo-build/desktop, i.e. almost
trivially available to the packageing scripts. They just have to be renamed.
2) Most of Jimmac's icons were painted for Ximian/Novell, so licenses won't
be a problem I guess, but anyway, asking him is the best way.

A comment from a backseat coder (i.e. from me; when will cvs move to
alioth?): it looks a bit strange that debian/rules first insert the path,
then strip it again ;-)
The /usr/share/pixmaps directory is deprecated for icons IIRC (cf.
icon-theme spec on freedesktop.org maybe). Default icons should go to
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/<something I forgot>/icon-name.png, themed icons to
I don't know if the original icons should go to hicolor and Jimmac's to
/usr/share/icons/gnome or /usr/share/icons/industrial or if Jimmac's should
go to hicolor...
Just some random comments.
