Hmm!  This is on 10.5.7, BTW.

$ sudo port version
Version: 1.710
$ sudo port info py25-sqlite3
py25-sqlite3 @2.5.4 (python, databases)
$ /opt/local/bin/python2.5
Python 2.5.4 (r254:67916, May  4 2009, 01:40:08) 
[GCC 4.0.1 (Apple Inc. build 5490)] on darwin

>>> from _sqlite3 import *

A quick web search shows that there were apparently some issues with 
MacPort's py25-sqlite3 in the not too distant past.  Perhaps your ports 
need to be upgraded? 

$ sudo port selfupdate
$ sudo port sync

$ sudo port upgrade installed
