If all they want is range and energy calcs, I recall coming across a few
open source stopping-power and range programs in the past...
Here are a couple that came up in a quick search:

Libdedx:  (from Denmark)

Range - the -dE/dx and range C/C++ library: (from Sweden)

Subject: [ RadSafe ] open source ion interaction with matter code

Hi All, 

A friend of mine (astronomer) is looking for code similar to MCNP-X that
will calculate the energy loss of ions as a function of distance
traveled to the interaction with different materials. 

They have concerns about the licensing and use requirements of MCNP-X. 

I have only used MCNP-X and haven't really looked for other options. 

I thought that someone on the list may know of something that I can pass
along to him.
