The HDK comes with Houdini Apprentice as well. Be reminded that you're 
still bound to non-commercial usage.

 From the Applications menu, launch Houdini > Houdini Shell.terminal. 
You should be able to do "ls $HFS/toolkit" from there. You will also be 
able to run hcustom from that shell as well.

On Mac OSX, Houdini is installed into the recommended standard location 
of /Library/Frameworks (as Houdini.framework).
