Sorry, I do not know the KDE-Darwin build, but
you can't copy libart into some odd directory and expect it to work.
You should have pkgconfig installed on your system
When libart is/was installed, an entry is made so that other programs can "find" libart, eg


and the entry is something like this 

Name: libart
Description: LGPL version of the libart library
Version: 2.3.16
Libs: -L${libdir} -lart_lgpl_2
Cflags: -I${includedir}/libart-2.0

So, where is your libart? Where is the libart-2.0.pc file and is that in your library search path, check /etc/ld.so.conf (as root #ldconfig -v)
