The license states total freedom for the binaries, but it doesn't say
anything about the sources. Here goes a quick translation:

Games can be freely distribuited. Hammer technologies does not have any
right to receive any fee or royalties. Games made by using DIV Games
Studio can be used for whatever you want, including selling them to
companies, shareware, freeware, etc.

Also, authors don't need to include any reference to DIV Games Studio or
to Hammer Technologies, but they can do it if they want.

In the installations you only need to include the file DIV32RUN.DLL, to
link to the functions of the programming language. This file will be
included in the final installations. DIV32RUN.DLL is a freeware
application. You can always get the latest version at DIV Games Studio

Also, creating and distributing libraries or utilities for this program
is allowed, even if the replace some of its functions.

So, more info about the sources of DIV32RUN.DLL is needed in order to
know if it is DSFG free.
