For x86 there is only one: boost-1.56.0-2 (+ boost-devel) and libkml and
libkml-vc14 depend on it.

For x86_64 there are two: boost-1.55.0-1 and boost-libs-1.56.0-1 (+
boost-devel).  There libkml and libkml-vc14 depend on boost-libs and pcl
depends on boost.

Julian Malik built boost for x86 (for OTB) and Bradley Chambers for x86_64
(apparently both versions).  In x86 I splitted the binary package boost into
boost and boost-devel.

Currently only GDAL (and obsolete otb-bin) depend on libkml.
