I have attached a rough script that do this.

You must copy these files:
  cities.gif, icons.gif, terrain1.gif, terrain2.gif, and units.gif
from the original civ2 cdrom to the freeciv "data" directory and run the 
script from _this_ directory.
Then simply start the client with "-t civ2gfx".

Warning: it requires gifsicle (<>), and giftopnm 
& ppmtoxpm (usually they are in the libgr-progs or netpbm-progs
