The initial version of the win32 related macro used a directory/pattern 
based search for icons and selected the really used icons inside the 
macro to be platform independent. See 
http://websvn.kde.org/?view=rev&revision=720773 for this version

I don't know why this was removed :-( 

Would the following form would be usable by mac os too ?  If so there 
could only be one macros for win32 and mac platform and the magics are 
done inside the macr.

KDE4_ADD_APP_ICON(<target> <icon-path-pattern> <source-variable>)
