I'm assuming you turned on the RSS feeds in your local/config.php  
file by uncommenting the line:

if ($action == 'rss') include_once("$FarmD/scripts/feeds.php");   #  
RSS 2.0

My usage is very close to your pmwiki test case.  I'm trying to think  
of other differences between my setup and yours that might be causing  
your failure.  I also have the cookbook FeedLinks (see http:// 
www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/FeedLinks) enabled with the following  
configuration, but it shouldn't be required for the RSS feed itself  
to work:

# Enable the feedlinks recipe.
$EnableSitewideFeed = 1; # Offer feeds by group if this is disabled.
$EnableRssLink = 1;
$EnableAtomLink = 0;

The only other difference that I'm noticing is the fact that both  
PmWiki and I use clean URLs (see http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/ 
CleanUrls) and you aren't.  Perhaps there is a problem in the  
feeds.php code.

I can't think of anything else offhand for you to check on.  I know  
that when I was originally testing RSS feeds, I was just using  
"localhost" in my feed URL and the URL got alterred in a MAJOR way by  
something - I'm not sure if it was PmWiki code or Safari.  My feed  
URL (feed://localhost/tandcwiki/Site/AllRecentChanges?action=rss) got  
modified to something totally bizzare (http://allrecentchanges/?
