In GTK builds (the default in Debian, and probably others), the toolbar uses 
icons from the current GTK icon theme.  I believe this is done in 
update_frame_tool_bar in gtkutil.c.

It should be enough to change the name of the icons on the toolbar. No need to 
take icons from GTK (if that means copying files into the Emacs repo).
