I don't think I follow.  Where can I find this "GNOME theme"?  It's
not part of the Emacs release tarball, is it?

What exactly do you mean by "icons follow the theme"? how does a theme
affect icons?

AFAIR, last time we made such an effort, we indeed took icons from GTK
or GNOME or from some similar collection.  But that was a long time
ago, and in particular the two rightmost icons you see in Message mode
were not part of that set, they were added by someone later.
