Comment (by ericlewis):

 This is a serious bug.

 To reproduce:

  + Create multisite install
  + Enable BP Multiblog, install BP
  + Navigate to BuddyPress > Forums settings page
  + Click either of the links to set up forums for groups

 The issue stems from the fact that when you enable multiblog in
 BuddyPress, all the BuddyPress settings are taken to the site level, and
 there are no network settings pages for BuddyPress anymore.

 It's also a bit of a tricky bug, as all multiblogs will use the same check
 to see if forums are already installed ( does the bbconfig file exist ),
 and therefore any site admin could turn of group forums for the entire

 Seems that group forums should perhaps have a site option to record
 whether they are installed or not for that site.
