I modified the path line in the script, but get errors when executing the script via the web or via shell. No data is imported into the fudforum database.

Errors are below:

The conversion script which I presume you've downloaded from this site cannot work against FUDForum which is part of eGW package. It is only (for now) intended to work with stand-alone FUDforum.
The reason being that inside eGW framework the forum does not have 'access' to create new users which is something that is necessary to facilitate conversion process.

Is there plans or stuff in the works to change this? Anyone know how to give access to perform this work?

It is not so much a matter of access but the matter of procedure. To properly import data the conversion script needs to create users with whom to associate messages etc... In eGW environment that would mean creating an eGW account for every single user who had used the original phpBB2 forum. In most situations that is something you would not want since eGW has much more functionality then just forum.
Hence there is a problem with writing such a conversion utility.
