Can you really not create an icon, or is it just that the frontend 
fails to launch?  Double-clicking mythfrontend.app won't work yet 
without some hacking.  Unless you've modified your environment.plist, 
mythfrontend.app won't be able to find the shared libraries it needs if 
you launch it from the Finder or the Dock.  (Your .bash_profile is only 
used in the Terminal, not in the graphical environment.)

You can find out more about environment variables in the GUI here:
