 All the KDE ports fail to build on my machine:
 - Yosemite 10.10.1
 - Xcode 6.1.1

 When I check the log files, I always see a command line with iconutil to
 generate a icns file from a iconset, followed by a failed copy of the
 When I check the build directory, the iconset file is present, but not the
 icns file that should have been generated.
 Executing the command with sudo generates the icns and I can then
 successfully resume the build.
 Ports with lots of icons are a pain… I have to repeat this for each icon.

 I tried settings the suid bit, the sticky bit, replacing /usr/bin/iconutil
 with a script that does a sudo.
 Nothing. The icns never gets generated.
 I'm really clueless.
