I have some icons in a Unix system, XV says its X11 bitmaps
and I want to use them in Windows NT. How do I convert them ? In all tools I tried they appear as default icon (windows flag) and not an icon file.

Another approach:

I have managed to get hold of these icons in GIF format and
tried to convert these to windows icons. The icons doesnt show in Windows NT 4.0

Convert the X11 bitmaps into 32x32, 16 bit color GIFS.
Use XV then PaintShopPro to reduce size and color depth.

Then go to
http://sunsite.lanet.lv/ftp/mirror/x2ftp/msdos/programming/convert/
and download
gif2icon.zip
Expand it out.
This is a DOS tool. At a DOS prompt type gif2icon filename.gif
It will create filename.ico

I've tried it. I is old, designed for Windows 3.0 but it works fine.
