[racket] Frog/Pygments build error

Trying to get set up with Frog, hit the following:

$ raco pkg install frog
$ mkdir scratch/frog-test
$ cd scratch/frog-test
$ raco frog --init
Frog 0.7
Configuration /home/joe/scratch/frog-test/.frogrc not found; using defaults.
Creating files in /home/joe/scratch/frog-test/:
Project ready. Try `raco frog -bp` to build and preview.

All good up to here, then...

$ raco frog -b
Frog 0.7
Using configuration /home/joe/scratch/frog-test/.frogrc
Traceback (most recent call last):

Is there some silly thing I've failed to do for setting up Pygments?
I had previously installed Pygments to use Jekyll for Github pages,
and I get the same message before and after a fresh

$ sudo easy_install Pygments

It could be my fault or some local install issue, but I figured I'd
see if anyone has hit this before.
