Does the php stuff come up everytime?
I just repaired permissions twice and got this both times:

Soooo.. what are the permissions on those files/directories then?

ls -l /Library

ls -l /usr/lib/php/build

Personally, I wouldn't worry about the widget one, but the php one.. I don't know what that one is all about.

I just googled for those "errors" and found out that I'm not the only one with these. The widget one is normal. The php one apparently came with 1.4.2, but I didn't find any reasons or fixes for it.

Oh, thanks a lot for trying to help! :)

Looks to me like #2 is a dud as well.. the current permission are those that the BOM archive says it's "supposed" to have, so when it says they're wrong, it's incorrect. I wouldn't worry about that one either.
