I don't see any problems with these.

I am not certain where fink puts these. I don't use it. I might  
suggest you download the TeXLive disk image from your nearest ctan  
mirror, or you can get it here

You will find that this image has all the necessary packages and  
classes, including apacite and apa.cls

Then you can your own files in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/tex/ 

But in this case you won't have to.

Put \bibliographystyle{apacite} here

See how you get on with adding that line first. You don't have to use  
apacite for the style, but it is a safe place to start.
