openmw-launcher from openmw 0.47.0rc-2 fails with this error:
openmw-launcher: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

openmw has "boost(make)" listed as a dependency but that package doesn't contain any .so's, however boost-libs has, installing that package allowed me to run the game.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
try to run openmw launcher without boost-libs installed
This task depends upon

Should be fixed, can you check?

I uninstalled openmw and boost-libs with pacman -Rns, then reinstalled openmw and it works.
