It is not easy. You have to have a png file of a certain size and
format containing frames and then turn it into a C struct which is
included in a file and complied to a .so.
The xfce4-session package handles this, and the code is not (yet) able
to load a png at runtime and play it, but relies on this build-time
conversion. I don't know if it's done this way for a small speed gain
or because at the time the code was written there was no animation API
in GTK.
