Yeah, at least one other person has told me the same thing
happened to them. So for anybody using Gmail -- or in general,
anybody who has tried to open a Bugzilla account and never
received the confirmation mail -- check you spam-flagged messages.

BTW, I'd be curious to find out exactly what spamminess in the
messages is causing Gmail to flag them. If we can find that out, I
might possibly be able to get a change made to prevent it from
happening.
