TMPDIR points into /var/folders.
Here's an example entry from macports's icon cache:

There are a number of files of the same size, plus many smaller. I have no idea
how I can map this to an actual icon though.

How large is your own icon cache directory? And asking here is me
investigating. I wouldn't really know where else to ask, Apple's
support/discussions forum? Doesn't seem like the most appropriate place to
discuss this kind of thing :)
