I've changed the license to CC BY-SA 3.0 to be more compatible with item 6 of the Debian Free Software Guidelines:

No Discrimination Against Fields of Endeavor

The license must not restrict anyone from making use of the program in a specific field of endeavor. For example, it may not restrict the program from being used in a business, or from being used for genetic research.

OK, fixed.
New version install script should run without errors, but let me know if you have trouble. - May 22 2012
Yes, exactly; I am planning to make building color themes an option in the build script (as well as using a makefile build system).
For an example, see Comixcursors. They start out greyscale, but the build process changes the gray tones into colors.

Line 76 in the build script is a blank line, can you give me the error you are seeing? - May 21 2012
Oops, that line should read:

for i in *.svg; do sed -e 's/#e9ddaf/#b8d0e8/g' -e 's/#fc0/#336699/g' -e 's/#c87137/#028482/g' $i > ../new_svg/$(basename $i); done - May 20 2012
Yes, different color versions are very possible, and easy to do with standard string replacement tools, as the svg format is really just a text file.
For example, using sed, we can replace all the colors easily:

sed 's/[old color]/[new color]/g' old_cursor.svg > new_cursor.svg

For example, in the following line, I have sed replace the colors (The '-e' option lets you place multiple text replacements on one line), and put the new svg's in another folder.
CD into the 'svg' folder where you unpacked the archive, and run this:

mkdir ../new_svg
for i in *.svg; do sed -e 's/#e9ddaf/#b8d0e8/g' -e 's/#fc0/#336699/g' -e 's/#c87137/#028482/g' $i > new_$i; done

I just picked a random blue-ish color scheme, replace the new numbers with colors you like.

This is a wonderful idea to have different color schemes available at build-time, and I am currently planning to do just that. If you have suggestions for color schemes (hex color names, please), leave them here and I will work them into the next release.
Thanks! - May 20 2012
Great suggestion, I didn't know about rsvg.

I'll add some code to the install script to detect the presence of either convert or rsvg and use the appropriate program.

Thanks! - Apr 15 2012
Thanks, I appreciate the feedback.
New version is in the works, with some improved cursors and more robust install script.
Thanks again,
