Icon get the image from the theme img directory. In a standard install, 
it is located in prefix/share/moin/htdocs/theme/, and ALL the wikis 
share the same directory.

There is no need to install moin multiple times, one install for each 
wiki, unless you want to run different versions of moin in the same 
time, for example, serve your production wiki with the current release, 
and play with a development version in an internal wiki. In this case, 
the wiki will use the theme directory of the moin version that run it.

If you want to share one theme with multiple versions of moin, you can 
install the theme only in one htdocs directory, and symlink the 
directory to the other htdocs directories. But note that the theme 
might not work with older or newer version of moin. In other words, 
don't do that.
