Things I've noticed about this:
1. Manually going into the Resources directory using "Show Package  
Contents" on the app made the icon show up in Finder for me.
2. A few months ago while building w/ xcode I got the the icon/program  
name show up everywhere (e.g. in Dock, Finder, Activity Monitor).   
cmake -G Xcode /path/to/source and the open the.xcodeproj and build  
with it.
