You really have two options getting icq to work like this; one is to install
a SOCKS proxy on your router, and the other is to use the ip_masq_icq module
for the kernel (which isn't in the official kernel iirc, you have to download
it separately and compile it yourself).

Debian has a few socks proxies packaged if you do an apt-cache search for it.
