if they are created using freehand and can be viewed in GIMP, then they
are not vector images, but raster ones instead.

Most XSL FO implementations support vector formats, and many handle more
than one vector format. SVG, embedding EPS into Postscript and PDF into PDF
are common choices.

Have you considered using vector images instead of raster graphic?
