From the PGP 8 license:
"What You Cannot Do. Under this license you do not have the right to, and you
use executable code versions of PGP software programs created by compiling
these source code files for any purpose or reason other than verifying that
there are no unknown vulnerabilities

No. Today, they can use two shells under Windows with extensions for
the explorer, a lot of gui's exist for other plattforms. GnuPG is well
integrated in a lot of mail clients and in some instant messengers or they can
use their own scripts for the console. They can get get help from a lot of
manuals, howto's and so on...
