I don't know about the Win distribution. Most likely the KDTree module simply 
wasn't included. Anyone?

Under Solaris, there is some kind of problem with building the module, most 
likely due to some bug in Distutils (as far as I could see it's a problem 
with the compilation flags during the creation of the shared library). So the 
module isn't built, and you get an import error. Unfortunately, I do not have 
access to Solaris, so I cannot look into it. 

Could you send me the compilation output? Mmmrrh, I suddenly realize that the
problem is quite likely that the C++ module is being compled with gcc and not 
gcc    assumes preprocessed (.i) files are C and assumes C style linking.
g++    assumes preprocessed (.i) files are C++ and assumes C++ style linking.
