Hope this makes it clear, its clear to me.. Yes you can sell and yes you can distribute...
as long as the license is included for view and Core. SDK encap/API is different, you
need a seperate
license when your code feeds on rebol code for input output by 3th party use (the users).
normal encapped file is free for sales....

REBOL API Restriction. If you choose to export the REBOL API (function and objects of
for users of programs created by REBOL/SDK (in other words, you allow users of your programs
to write and execute REBOL scripts within your program), you must obtain a separate commercial
distribution license from REBOL Technologies. If your program does not allow users to
REBOL API, then no additional license is required.
You may redistribute the SOFTWARE provided that you include this
entire License AGREEMENT and all copyright and trademark
notices; and agree to indemnify, hold harmless, and defend
REBOL from and against any claims or lawsuits, including
attorneys' fees, that arise from use, reproduction, or
distribution of the SOFTWARE.
REBOL/core and /view is distributed on Shareware cdroms all over the world
downloadble from "commercial" sites as well.. and they all keep the License included
