Note that at least some so-called "free" versions of Borland products
used to come with very restrictive licenses.

E.g. I once downloaded the compiler in order to run tests on Linux. I
had to download and to unpack the distribution in order to be able to
read the license agreement which required me to release everything I
write or test using the compiler has to be released under GPL.

IANAL, but using the free Borland products seems to be a risk for Boost
(even if the risk is "only" a lawsuit that could be won).
