They are compatible:

BSL isn't really very similar to the LGPL -- it's much less restrictive.
It's not copyleft, for example. It's more similar to 2-clause BSD, but
even more permissive (no clause 2).

libstdc++ is licensed under GPL3 with *additional* exceptions, which are
very permissive. It can be used freely with non-GPL/closed code.
