   Sorry was a typo. I used the "meta-toolchain" recipe as recommended.

The standard boost header files. On desktop FS after install boost I get
/us/lib/boost/*. (Example accumulator/ circular_buffer/  etc.).
I just did a more generic grep and found that files were located in the
following path

Alternatively, the source header files could be used from the boost
source tarball from the boost website or downloads folder in yocto.

I am not sure if the boost package is built completely. I am not aware
of any way to test if all libraries are being built.
Will check boost website for more details.
