I have VTK working with python 2.2 but when I try to use it with 2.3 
I get undefined symbols.  I noticed something similar happening with 
other packages and the problem was resolved by recompiling these 
other packages.  Recompiling VTK did not resolve the problem.  Here 
is the error (Python 2.3 built from CVS and VTK build from a CVS 
about a month ago):

>>>  from vtkpython import *
