yum on freebsd 9: No module named sqlite

Hi folks,

Is anyone running yum successfully on release 9?

I am trying to get a yum repository running on FreeBSD 9-RELEASE-p17 in order to replace a Linux machine.  /usr/ports is current.  sysutils/yum (3.4.3_2) builds cleanly, ‘yum’ fails to start with the above error.  Yum is essentially 100% python.

/usr/ports/databases/py-sqlite3 is installed.  There is no ‘py-sqlite’ package in ports.  This error extends to various yum components (i.e. import sqlitesack, import sqlutils, and so forth).

I am stymied.  Going through the ports code has not been enlightening.  Any suggestions?
