If my memory serves correctly, imagemagick supports them just like most other image formats.

You can use the convert tool, it works like this (most basic usage, but it could do much more things):

convert myfile.gif myfile.wbmp
I don't know about graphical tools. I just took a quick look at gimp and it doesn't include wbmp on the list of supported extensions.

you get to filter the dreck that is Google search results, though. check it yourself first next time, yeah? saves us some time, and it helps you get to know your own system better.
