My client has a need to be able to include text from PDF's in site searchs. Does anyone know if this possible using the standard silverstripe search?
I found this page http://doc.silverstripe.org/modules:sphinx but can't seem to find much more on it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The built in search cannot search pdf text so you'll have to use Sphinx which you can download via svn - http://svn.silverstripe.com/open/modules/sphinx/trunk. A bit more documentation is available in the readme file / docs bundled with the module.

no, but you do not need any exe's to do so, you can use php functions to get the text content of a pdf (http://www.webcheatsheet.com/php/reading_clean_text_from_pdf.php) and then you can change "function results($data, $form)" in Page.php to add items to the results based on what you find.
foreach ($arrPDFs as $pdf)
$p = new Page();
$p->Title = "Title"; //update with value from current pdf
$p->URLSegment = "URLSegment"; //update with value from current pdf
$p->Content = "Content"; //update with value from current pdf
$p->Name = "Name"; //update with value from current pdf
$p->Relevance = 1;//not sure about this one
$p->CanViewType = 'Anyone';
