I haven't tried but it should work using the pixbuf-loader API:

GdkPixbufLoader *    gdk_pixbuf_loader_new           (void);
GdkPixbufLoader *    gdk_pixbuf_loader_new_with_type (const char *image_type,
                                                      GError    **error);
gboolean             gdk_pixbuf_loader_write         (GdkPixbufLoader *loader,
                                                      const guchar    *buf,
                                                      gsize            count,
                                                      GError         **error);
GdkPixbuf *          gdk_pixbuf_loader_get_pixbuf    (GdkPixbufLoader *loader);
GdkPixbufAnimation * gdk_pixbuf_loader_get_animation (GdkPixbufLoader *loader);
gboolean             gdk_pixbuf_loader_close         (GdkPixbufLoader *loader,
                                                      GError         **error);

you create a new pixbuf loader, feed it the inline data, close it,
retrieve the pixbuf and unref the loader. Voila.

Salut, Sven
