We ship kdebase/runtime/pics/hicolor/index.theme, which is properly installed 
in $PREFIX/share/icons/hicolor.

Otherwise, there's the hicolor-icon-theme[1] definition which 
provides more or less the same file. (This is also what GNU/Linxu distros 
ship, correctly preferring it to our local copy.)

It would appear some file not installed in such packages?
