I've logged this as a bug. AuthUser is meant to be optional.

Config looks fine, although I would remove the $bi_DefaultGroup line -- 
I suspect it's this which is causing your Recently Written list to be 
empty. This line instructs BlogIt to only look in Main group for blog 
entries. If you created entries in another group they will not be 
listed. If you exclude the definition of $bi_DefaultGroup, all blog 
entries across all groups will be listed.

If it's only you administering the blog, then you can simplify things:
# [1] Define BlogIt roles, and associated actions
# Actions: 'comment-edit', 'comment-approve', 'blog-edit', 
'blog-new','sidebar', 'blogit-admin'
$bi_Auth['blogit'] = array('comment-edit', 'comment-approve', 
'blog-edit', 'blog-new', 'sidebar', 'blogit-admin');

# [2] Define users passwords
$AuthUser['daveg'] = crypt('daveg');  #set daveg password

# [3] Add users to the roles
$AuthUser['@blogit'] = array('daveg');

# [4] Assign roles to security groups
$DefaultPasswords['blogit'] = array('@blogit');

# [5] Assign roles to pmwiki actions
$DefaultPasswords['edit'] = '@blogit';

# if not included, blogit fails @ line 581

$HandleAuth['source'] = 'edit';  #Prevents non authorized users from 
viewing comment source email address
$HandleAuth['diff'] = 'edit';  #Prevents non authorized users from 
viewing comment source email address

$MaxIncludes=500;  #BlogIt makes heavy use of includes, so this needs to 
be increased.
