And to answer the original statement: the kde overlay often puts the ebuilds in before the sources themselves hit the mirrors. And the .xz compression format is the successor to the .lzma format, if I recall should have xz-utils on your system.

This isn't the bitch and moan mailing list. If you've got problems with
an overlay maintainer, then take it to the overlay maintainer. General
support questions come here.

Having said that, you *are* using an overlay. Caveat emptor, and I'm
not absolutely certain, but I have a pretty good idea that KDE doesn't
even have a oxygen-icons-4.4.92.
