Wine already requires all the build tools you would need to do this in
order to build icons.  It would essentially be the same procedure
except that you'd want to have a "source" toolbar bitmap file
describing the size to use and the list of icons to pull.  Once you
pull out the correct size from each icon then you just feed that list
to ImageMagick:

I'm aware that some of these bitmaps are available through comctl32,
but hhctrl.ocx shares a bunch of icons with IE (home, stop, refresh,
etc.).  I imagine you would not approve of adding custom image lists
to comctl32 for handling the icons that overlap between IE and
