I am trying to get a refresh of Boost for x86_64 to refresh PCL. This
would also require refreshing FLANN, and I'm not sure of the impact of
that one either. PCL is an optional library for PDAL that some users
have been asking for. It may be simpler to statically link everything to
PDAL rather than to touch all of these OSGeo4W libraries.

libLAS also depends on Boost and would likely need to be recompiled. I
made a few fixes to libLAS to catch it up to the latest GDAL.

Once these changes are all made we plan to add Entwine
https://entwine.io and Greyhound https://greyhound.io as new packages.
