those symbols are very simple, drawing them can be a very good project 
for someone wanting to learn how to draw in Inkscape.

when i started drawing my clipart collection, the first gallery was the 
one with arrows and the second with flowchart symbols. i used Dia as a 
reference for what flowchart symbols to include

the work can be speed'ed-up by saving the shapes from Dia as SVG and 
adjust them in Inkscape as needed, but for this we probably need 
permission from the original authors, so probably is not worth the effort
