The inspect program checks the entire contents of the files. In this
case the "Subject to the Boost Software License..." at the top is the
license, so it's not absent. The visible license notice in this case
comes from the top xml file
So the problem isn't with the inspection program but with
BoostBook+DocBook translation which does not include the license info
throught the rest of the generated HTML files.
