gpodder fails after install

I just freshly installed gpodder from ports (which I updated on
Tuesday), but I get the following errors thrown at me when I try to
start it:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/gpodder", line 162, in <module>
    from gpodder import gui
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/gpodder/", line 71,
in <module>
    from gpodder import my
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/gpodder/", line 45,
in <module>
    from mygpoclient import api
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/mygpoclient/", line
21, in <module>
    from mygpoclient import simple
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/mygpoclient/",
line 21, in <module>
    from mygpoclient import json
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/mygpoclient/",
line 20, in <module>
    import simplejson as json
ImportError: No module named simplejson

Everything it depended on (including mplayer support and video support)
compiled and installed without any apparent error (as did gpodder).

That's with gpodder run as a regular user.

Trying to run it as the root user throws out the following:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/gpodder", line 138, in <module>
    session_bus = dbus.SessionBus()
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/dbus/", line 219,

  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/dbus/", line 108,
in __new__
    bus = BusConnection.__new__(subclass, bus_type, mainloop=mainloop)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/dbus/", line 125,
in __new__
    bus = cls._new_for_bus(address_or_type, mainloop=mainloop)
