This is strange, it should work. Although possibly nobody has tried to do this 
on OS X which means there could be some unknown bugs left either in the code 
or in the instructions. What does the following command show

  ls -l ~/.voikko/2/*

However for testing HFST the instructions Flammie posted are more useful. The 
automated test suite contains no tests for HFST. It is possible to use 
libvoikko/malaga tests directly with HFST but many of them fail because Omorfi 
does not support many of the features that are present in Suomi-malaga.
