emacs.xbm, gnu.xpm

These are very old images not used by anything in the Emacs source
tree.  Let's just delete them.


This is an old file that is read by Gnus in case
etc/images/gnus/gnus.xpm is unavailable.  Let's just delete it.


This is a straightforward conversion of the Gnu Emacs logo to EPS
format, used by a couple of reference cards.  I don't think it counts
as a creative work.


These are simple images whose source code consists of three short
lines.  They should not be considered creative works.  (If we want to
worry about them, let's just delete them and make new versions---which
would take about half a minute.)
