link directly to their binary. upon first launch it typically asks you to
accept their agreement and choose from a feature-limited free (as in beer)
version or to upload the license file.

Should be fine. There are plenty of closed source and pay-for software
packaging scripts in the SBo repository, and then there are pieces like the
JDK where you have to accept a license agreement before downloading.

Just don't distribute the software yourself - point to the original source
and you'll be fine.
