I had this very same problem and was able to fix it. It seems that
kdebase-runtime.pkg doesn't install properly through kde.mpkg. When i tried
installing it by hand using open kdebase-runtime.pkg, the installer ran but
failed. Although i noticed that installer.app never asked for my sudo
password. I then tried sudo open kdebase-runtime.pkg, and that failed too.
What ended up working for me is chown -R USERNAME /opt, then i ran the
installer by hand again, and kdebase-runtime.pkg finally installed -- and i
got icons!

I hope this helps, 

btw, i like how the everything.torrent is comprised of multiple files now
and the mac.kde.org webpage looks awesome. Thanks for your work!
