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 (<http://www.lcdf.org/gifsicle>), and giftopnm
