The compiler itself is freeware. Parts of its source may not be published. Together with the compiler comes a fairly complete source code of the D-specific part of compiler, which is licensed under (at user's option) as GPL or under (Perl) Artistic License. There is also complete source code for the run-time library. Most of it is apparently licensed under the same model as partial compiler source, but licenses are different for different files. Please check their headers. I would believe there is no problem for redistribution of them with a free compiler. A complete GPLed compiler based on GCC 3.3 or 3.4 is underway. -eye
