Yes, the idea of the Boost Software License is that you don't have to ask such questions. Boost allows you to do anything you want with the source, whether embedding, modifying, etc. and you don't have to ask anyone for permission or even mention that you're using someone else's
software to your users, as the BSD advertising clause requires.

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.
