Check this post for a link to create one using gimp.

Sorry forgot to add the link. It was the same as bluelighting below has.

There's already a nice post on at

As for the quick answer of how to make the XPM, I use gimp. I think you can use imagemagick too. Just make sure the image is 640x480 16 colors (you might need to do 14 colors).
