[meta-freescale] Boost 1.55 for IMX6 Quad : Need confirmation about the completeness of process used by me

Process I followed
1) MACHINE=imx6qsabresd source fsl-setup-release.sh -b build-dfb -e dfb
2) I was successful in building the toolchain with boost 1.55 by just
adding the following
     TOOLCHAIN_TARGET_TASK += "boost-dev" to conf/local.conf
3) Executed bitbake metafsl-toolchain

Result :
ufouser at ufouser-virtual-machine:/Data/yocto/fsl-arm-yocto-bsp/build-dfb/tmp/sysroots/imx6qsabresd/usr/lib$
find . -name "*boost*" | grep so | grep 55

My Questions:

1) I could not find the header files in either the /opt/poky path after
untaring the SDK nor in the tmp/sysroots folder.
     Should I use the source from the tar ball from website directly for
my version of boost ??

2) Are the above set of files all that boost is going to build? Since I
could see a few more packages on desktop hence
     wondering if they are just bindings that original packages like
python etc will build later for themselves.

3) Please let me know if I need to add additional information to my
config to ensure I get all the boost libraries.

4) If yocto is providing a limited set then is it advisable to build the
libraries for 1.55 independently ( hoping this will never be needed)?
