Seems like there are pieces missing from your Racket installation. Is this your first time installing Racket? If so, what platform and how did you install?
It is my first time with Racket.
I'm on OS X 10.9. I installed it through Homebrew originally, which gave me these problems.
I then tried the binaries from racket-lang.org, but the default download is 32-bit and 10.9 has issues with that. I re-downloaded 64-bit binaries and after some issues with installing them and some help from irc, I've managed to get pollen installed and working correctly. Sorry for the trouble.

but attempting to install these with homebrew's raco:
raco pkg installyields many more errors. I'll take it up with the homebrew maintainer.
