If it were me, I'd just write a perl script that parses the log files
for URLs that match a given pattern and presents a list of referers.

A somewhat easier way to do this would be to use the "SetEnvIf" to set a
variable if the request is for one of these images that you're tracking,
then use that flag with a "CustomLog" statement to generate a log file
of referers for that image/resource/url.
