Yes, the idea of the Boost Software License is that you don't

That's not entirely true. The license and copyright notice need
to be included somewhere if you're distributing the source
code. If you're _only_ distributing machine code, the license
or copyright need not to be included.
Right, that's what I got at with the second paragraph. In his
case, the dmd binary wouldn't require anything, and as long as he
doesn't strip the copyright/licence notices from the included
druntime/phobos source, he's fine. His own D source, of course,
would be under any license he chose.
