Unfortunately iceme and icepref are old and very broken.  A new program,
called icewmcp, has replaced them.  I was going to package it as I had
intended to use IceWM in a 12 machine deployment at my church, but I
ended up going with GNOME for a number of reasons.  Anyhow, someone else
expresses an interest a while back (you can check
http://bugs.debian.org/wnpp to see who file the intent to package), but
I don't know what came of it.
