There are minimum requirements for phpMyAdmin as per README, changing to:
Requires: webserver, php >= 4.1.0, php-mysql >= 4.1.0, php-mbstring >= 4.1.0, 
mysql-server >= 3.23.32

<Directory /usr/share/phpMyAdmin/libraries>

# This configuration prevents mod_security at phpMyAdmin directories from
# filtering SQL etc.
<IfModule mod_security.c>
    <LocationMatch "/phpMyAdmin/(.+)">
        SecFilterInheritance Off

Another thing is, for my personal use, I didn't allow logins at phpMyAdmin
using the "mysql" user which has normally no password. At least I changed 
authentication method to "http" to allow every mysql user a login. Just have
a look to the patch to see what I did...

Oh and there are two additional rpmlint messages:
W: phpMyAdmin incoherent-version-in-changelog
E: phpMyAdmin zero-length /usr/share/doc/phpMyAdmin-

Hm, when symlinking the configuration file, you also should add a "Options 
+FollowSymLinks" or similar to Source2, otherwise there can be a Forbidden with 
having a strict Apache configuration, IIRC.

And finally, isn't phpMyAdmin 2.8.1 latest version (as per
