phpBB is a highly popular web-based forum ("bulletin board") system using PHP
and a database backend such as PostgreSQL, MySQL, ODBC, and others. (Without
one of these, phpBB will not function.) It has many advanced features such as
versatile users/groups permissions management, theoretically limitless forums,
categories, and posts, a private messaging system among users, a highly
customizable style, and a simple but extensive administrative control panel.

With this package, rpmlint complains a little. Two points:
Firstly, it gives an error that the scripts do not have shebangs. Since these are PHP scripts meant to be run through mod_php (provided by the php package), this seems safe to ignore.
  E: phpBB script-without-shellbang /var/www/phpBB2/admin/admin_forums.php
  E: phpBB script-without-shellbang /var/www/phpBB2/language/lang_english/lang_main.php

Secondly, it complains that there is an htaccess file in the distribution:
  E: phpBB htaccess-file /var/www/phpBB2/cache/.htaccess
This is where phpBB stores it cache data, and this .htaccess file explicitly disallows any direct requests for those files. Thus, this seems reasonable to ignore, also.

I've tested this on FC4, and mock builds to test it on FC5 and Devel are currently running on my workstation (though it seems like there should be no problem).
