This should probably go upstream to PHP forum developers, but why is it when I search for something, the next page gives lots of results but there is no where on the page that prints out what I actually searched for? If I have a few search pages open I have no idea which one was which query.

Also, why do popular terms like "libstdc++.so.5" return no results in a search? Not very intuitive - if there is a way to find the above query, like omitting the "++" or something, some instructions need to be posted on how to use the search, because presently it's not very helpful.

Good to go, posted a bug report. Looks like they have a lot.
Located here:
http://www.phpbb.com/bugs/bug.php?op=show&bugid=1428

That is concerning the display of the query on the results page. What about searching for popular terms such as "libstdc++" etc? I assume that's just how phpbb does its searching, but why does it yield no results?

'+' is not considered a word character, so it doesn't get included with the word. Try "libstdc".
