You are using the package from Blastwave, not from OpenCSW. And this is 
not an error on your side.

You installed the package before the fork, and this package was not 
updated since. But... the libs it is using have been modified, and 
libxcb linking is no longer compatible between both project.

I suggest your try to remove then reinstall kicad. It should work.

Thanks for raising this problem. We will try to solve it in a "global way".
