How to PROVIDE boost-python


Hi all - 

I'm trying to build an opca recipe ( and it's giving me a build error like: 

| /local/d6/easmith5/rocko_bitbake/poky/build/tmp/work/aarch64-poky-linux/opc-ua-server-gfex/1.0+gitAUTOINC+921c563309-r0/recipe-sysroot-native/usr/bin/aarch64-poky-linux/../../libexec/aarch64-poky-linux/gcc/aarch64-poky-linux/7.3.0/ld: cannot find -lboost_python-mt

Which seems to indicated I need to add boost-python to my list of DEPENDS. When I do that I get the error: 

ERROR: Nothing PROVIDES 'boost-python' (but /local/d6/easmith5/rocko_bitbake/meta-l1calo/recipes-core/opc-ua/ DEPENDS on or otherwise requires it). Close matches:
  boost RPROVIDES boost-python 

I've tried adding PACKAGECONFIG_pn-boost="python" to both my local.conf and to the image definition as I saw this online, but neither seems to work. It seems like boost-python is being built (I can see it in the list when I run oe-pkgdata-utils list-pkgs -p boost) but it doesn't seem to be available at build for this recipe. 

If I remove boost from my list of DEPENDS I get an error about that, so obviously boost itself is available at build for the original recipe. I've also tried adding boost-native to DEPENDS, also did not work. 

Is there something obvious I'm missing, or some trick to making boost-python available at build for this other recipe?
