I don't know of an automated way to do this, but I have a couple of 

-- To eliminate extra space that will mess up your vertical separations 
between lines, use the shrink-wrap command (Esc m p) to reduce the 
anchored frame to exactly the size of its contents.

-- After you shrink the frame, select it again and set the Distance 
above Baseline to a negative number.  (You'll have to experiment to find 
the right setting, but -3 or -5 is likely to work.)  If you have to do 
this often, be sure to learn the keyboard shortcuts:

Alt+s a         to open the anchored frame dialog box
Alt+d           to select the Distance value
Enter           to close the dialog box after typing the new value

-- If all your icons are the same size, you can save a suitably sized 
and distanced empty anchored frame in a text frame on a reference page. 
  Before importing the first graphic, copy and paste from the ref. page 
into your body page, then (with the frame still selected) import the 
graphic file.

-- The anchored frame dialog box settings will persist until you change 
them or until you use File > Import > File with no anchored frame 
selected.  Therefore, if you create one properly distanced anchored 
frame, you can save time by inserting the next anchored frame *before* 
importing the next graphic, then shrink-wrapping.  The Distance setting 
will be unaffected.

Lucy: Charlie Brown, life is like a deck chair on a cruise ship. 
Passengers open up these canvas deck chairs so they can sit in the sun. 
Some people place their chairs facing the rear of the ship so they can 
see where they've been. Other people face their chairs forward -- they 
want to see where they're going. On the cruise ship of life, which way 
is your deck chair facing?

Charlie Brown: "I've never been able to get one unfolded."
