Actually, a better route would be to make a port of the wall paper.
The base system doesn't hold much stuff that is strictly decorative,
and it doesn't include X window system stuff either. All that
generally comes from the ports.
See the Porter's Handbook:
for instructions on how to create and submit a port. As you're pretty
much just downloading a single file and installing it to some location
under /usr/X11R6 without having to do any compilation or anything, it
should be a pretty simple port to create.
