Part of the installation, which needs to be customised at each site,
is to set $ICONSERVER to the *web address* of a location where a copy of
the icons is available. You should either manually copy the icons to
this destination, else set  $ICONPATH  to this place in the local file-system.

This *must* be done to have the icons available on the web using http protocols.

If you do not do this, then the icons will only be available locally,
when you visit a page using  file:.....  or  localfile:..... protocols.

The command-line switch to do this is  -local_icons 
alternatively, set  $LOCAL_ICONS = 1;
