The icon in the dock is just a shortcut, tho'.
Other users won't be able to run the program unless the app's bundle  
is already somewhere they can read & execute it.
Hence the need to drag & drop it somewhere like Applications.

I _think_ also that the dock is user-specific (see "~/Library/ 
Preferences/com.apple.dock.plist", note the "~/") so in order for  
other users to find it easily in the dock he'd have to log on as each  
user in turn & drag the program there for them.
