II'd agree with Brad. Like PhpBB, much discussion and blog software are now offering many 'portal' like features. We use Movable Type for example. The flexibility is quote amazing as we started to use templates and includes to create highly dynamic pages. We were able to create pages that looked very different from other 'portally' like pages but with the same functionality. Decide on your focus first - discussion or news or whatever and then add on as you get comfortable with the system. Maybe the main problem with the PHPnuke and clones is that people just want everything and are not an expert at any!
