I haven't tried the OS X version of Myth, but I do know OS X. I can try to help.

If you have a program that is packaged as an appfolder (ends in .app
if you look do an ls -l at the terminal), then it should already have
an icon and be double-clickable.

Do you currently have a double-clickable Myth appfolder?
