I dug around. This web page shows the individual items in the AAVID heat sink hardware kit:
AAVID Heat Sink Mounting Kits
Basically, you need SAE #4-40 machine screws, nuts, washers, and lock washers. These should be cheaper at your local hardware store than they are in a kit.
The only real advantage of the kit is that it comes with an insulator, but I am going to guess that thermal paste is also more cost effective. If anyone knows of a reason to prefer an insulator over thermal paste, post a reply.
Update: Sparkfun sells some of the necessary hardware:
Unfortunately, it does not appear that Sparkfun sells washers or lock washers.
Where can I get mounting hardware for this part?
No public wish lists :(
