To quote from an older post:

KDTree works fine. But: it needs a working C++ compiler, and 
a complete installation of Numpy (including header files) to compile. 
It seems that on Solaris it does not compile due to a bug in Distutils, which 
is not really coping well with C++ on some platforms (ie. missing flags, 
compiling with gcc instead of g++ etc.).
