Ah, strange.  I'm not sure where the xemacs package puts things, so
can't say whether that's the proper place... but...

you have them in this directory above, all the .xpm files are what it
is looking for:

Ah; do other ESS users on the list find this problem too?

Try the following; in your .emacs file:

(setq ess-icon-directory "/usr/share/.../ess")
(require 'ess-site)

i.e. set the variable first before loading ESS.  (and use the path
that you abbreviated above).

Good luck!
