I guess this is this:

$ python
>>> from pkg_resources import require
>>> require("pocketsphinx")
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'pocketsphinx' distribution was not found and is required by the application

Probably something like that, yes.  Upstream however doesn't use
setuptools any more, and doesn't distribute eggs any more. I have
reported the issue upstream
