What you can do is:

  . create a component that receives a copy of each presence,  
incoming and outgoing;
  . look for the tell tale   <x xmlns='vcard- 
  . if hash is not present in your local disk, fetch it with XEP-0054;
  . associate JID from presence to hash of photo.

Things you need to have, and someone else might know how to get from  
ejabberd: a copy of all your incoming and outgoing presences.
