The main things are MySQL, Perl, an MTA, and Apache2.  There's a whackload
of perl modules that are needed as well that I don't remember off the top
of my head.  There's a checksetup perl script that will install them if
you don't mind polluting your system with CPAN modules.  If not, I think
Dag has all of the perl modules as rpms.

Requirements are listed here.

With my use case, bugzilla.c.o would only need a couple of users to triage
and treat appropriately.

Honestly, I think this may not be a bad way to do things permanently,
based on Felix's experiences from using abrt in Fedora, as it would let
developers concentrate on reproducible bugs.
