There is no separate license for Data Guard - it's included with EE, and not 
available for SE (at least in 10g+, not sure about 9i).  So you just have to 
pay for the database licenses on the primary and standby regardless of whether 
you use DG or your own log shipping scripts.  The savings of using custom 
scripts instead of DG is only realized if it allows you to license SE instead 
of EE.  Note that there is an extra cost for Active Data Guard in 11g.
