You could compile it yourself for that platform, looks like its pretty portable..

I would try to contact them and ask if they already ported it, or if they know about anybody who ported it already, its open-source, so its quite likely.

  Reading png File:

    ImageMagick-6.5.4\png\example.c

  Writing xbm File:

    ImageMagick-6.5.4\coders\xbm.c

It doesnt need to have a display, its just reading one buffer/file and writing into another buffer/file, no display needed for that.
