Every format needs a converter which converts it to XPM format and spits
it out on stdout. For images which are already in XPM format the converter
is cat, so it works on any system.

JPG is handled by the djpeg program.

XBM and many other formats are handled by the Netpbm converter collection.
I have a feeling that the Netpbm converter for XBM is broken.
