since pdftex is free this is ok, but

(1) they should clearly mention it somewhere in their documentation
(2) there should be a clear indication of a version/release number

[users need to be aware of the more general tex solution as well as the 
fact that they may be using an old version not adapted to the latest pdf 

i suggest that you ask them for a copy of the software so that you can 
check this / advise them
