Are you speaking of the harvard package from CTAN at <http:// 

No Makefile there, only .bst and .sty plus doc files:

Portable-de-Bruno:harvard brunovoisin$ ls -l
total 184
-rw-rw-r--   1 brunovoi  staff  22629 Jul 20  1992 agsm.bst
-rw-rw-r--   1 brunovoi  staff  22790 Jul 20  1992 dcu.bst
-rw-rw-r--   1 brunovoi  staff    584 Jul 20  1992 harvard.bib
-rw-rw-r--   1 brunovoi  staff   2409 Nov 15  1993 harvard.description
-rw-rw-r--   1 brunovoi  staff   2838 Nov 25  1993 harvard.sty
-rw-rw-r--   1 brunovoi  staff   5960 Nov 25  1993 harvard.tex
-rw-rw-r--   1 brunovoi  staff  22553 Jul 20  1992 kluwer.bst

I'm not using it myself, but logically things should go as follows  
(beware this is ~/Library/texmf/, not ~/texmf/):

- .bst files to ~/Library/texmf/bibtex/bst/harvard/

- .sty file to ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/harvard/

- documentation files harvard.bib, harvard.description and  
harvard.tex to ~/Library/texmf/doc/latex/harvard/

You can then procduce the documentation by:

- Downloading a4.sty from <http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/ 
latex209/contrib/misc/> and installing it in ~/Library/texmf/tex/ 

- LaTeXing harvard.tex, BibTeXing harvard.aux, then LaTeXing  
harvard.tex again twice (I think).

Hope this helps,
