I just tested it and on installation of the package the icon cache gets
recreated. There is nothing in the postinst maintainer script inserted
by dh_icons, so at least since Ubuntu 10.04 it is standard that the
hicolor icon cache gets automatically recreated once a packages ships
hicolor icons (which we do anyway for the desktop icons).

under /usr/share/icons/16x16/pspp don't have stock icons from GNOME, GTK
