      Latest version installed: [ Not Installed ]
      Size of files: 1,463 kB
      Description:   phpBB is an open-source bulletin board package.
      License:       GPL-2

Calculating dependencies... done!

emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "phpbb".

Expected Results:  
Something similar to when I emerged everything else...?

Gentoo docs say that the error message indicates a bug.

I just installed Gentoo about a week ago, so everything ought to be fresh.  Tried "emerge --sync" just in case, but it made no difference.

Since this software is more or less just a bunch of PHP files, I believe I can just download it to a web directory without the need to compile or "install" anything.

You should read the output: its phpBB and not phpbb ;-)
