Hi Adam,

thanks for the detailed answer. I haven't used Boost.Geometry rtree in a while, so I'm stuck already.  :\  
I created an rtree of 2D Cartesian points, that's fine. But when I tried to do a query using a nearest(segment, 1) predicate, I get a compilation error that looks like comparable_distance is not-yet-implemented between SEGMENT and BOX.

It is supported. It's hard to tell what may be the problem in your case without the code. The following code compiles and runs correctly for me:

#include <boost/geometry.hpp>
#include <boost/geometry/index/rtree.hpp>

OK, as I suspected, it's a matter of including the right headers.
This is what I had:

#include <boost/geometry/geometries/point.hpp>
#include <boost/geometry/geometries/segment.hpp>
#include <boost/geometry/strategies/strategies.hpp>
#include <boost/geometry/index/rtree.hpp>

And I got it to compile by adding one more header: <boost/geometry/algorithms/comparable_distance.hpp>
(I thought I tried this before posting, but, evidently not.)

My feeling is that whatever dependency is provided by that header should probably be included automatically with rtree, but on looking back through the documentation I can see that you do recommend

#include <boost/geometry.hpp>

so I guess I just need to get used to that practice.
Thanks for your patience with my regressing back to teething problems!
