ironically, I don't have imagemagick installed on any of my boxes, but
have netpbm on all. (but then I can use any of the numerous ppmto* and
pnmto* and pamto* to convert to whatever I need.)

that said, however, I don't really get why one would insist on having
pbm as intermediate format, apart from "because you can".

for me, pbm is a medium which allows to apply all the tools available in
the netpbm suite on a bulk of images, and there are quite some of them.
