The inspection report includes possible license issues. See http://boost.cowic.de/rc/inspect-trunk.html, 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/strong_typedef.hpp: *C*, *Lic*
