Gentoo Linux provides ebuilds for:
  - kde-misc/colord-kde
  - x11-libs/colord-gtk
  - kde-misc/kolor-manager

But kolor-manager does not use KDE version numbers like,
4.11.0, but 0.99 an 1.01. So it looks like it is not very
integrated yet.

When I bought my ColorHug on February 2013, I followed
http://scribblesandsnaps.com/tag/colorhug/ (Thanks Dmitri!)
and installed:
  - media-gfx/argyllcms
  - media-gfx/dispcalgui
  - media-gfx/colorhug-client,
    which depends on x11-libs/colord-gtk
    (although Desktop is KDE)

This works very well for me as a color management layman. ;)
