Giving them acknowledgement, especially if they contribute in any way
including providing liscences for compilers, is more than appropriate
IMHO. The only thing I can see is that some users may get the
mistaken impression that Boost officially endorses a commercial
product or company, so it might also be appropriate to include a
blurb somewhere stating that Boost does not officially endorse any
contributing companies or products.
