Nice!  Comments below:

Remember this field must be either a <license> object or a list thereof
(the one above is a list of symbols.)  So change it to:

  (license (list license:gpl2 license:gpl3))

Also, please add a comment stating what this means exactly: is it
dual-licensed?  Does it mean that some files are GPLv2-only and others
are GPLv3-only (which would be a problem)?

Does it mean some files are GPLv2-or-later and others are
GPLv3-or-later?  In that case, the value should be ‘license:gpl3+’.

Should be #:phases.

Missing opening parenthesis.

A bit terse.  ;-)  Maybe there’s a paragraph from README or so that
could be used?

Same as above.
