The inspection report includes possible license issues. See, particularly the files marked with "*Lic*".

I just did a quick scan and only found a few problems that are not either documentation (often generated files), tools, examples, or unit tests (the latter two should probably be licensed properly since they are a likely source for copying by users, but often aren't properly licensed). Absolutely no warranty that this list is complete.

boost/range/adaptor/define_adaptor.hpp: *C*, *Lic*
boost/range/combine.hpp: *C*, *Lic*
boost/range/counting_range.hpp: *Lic*
boost/range/istream_range.hpp: *Lic*
boost/test/utils/runtime/cla/detail/argument_value_usage.hpp: *Lic*
boost/strong_typedef.hpp: *C*, *Lic*
boost/shared_container_iterator.hpp: *Lic*
