Actually, the wiki.d/.htaccess is created as needed whenever a page is 
written.  So, edit a page and see if it appears.

Also, PmWiki only creates the wiki.d/.htaccess if it doesn't exist, so
in this case an administrator can create a custom .htaccess and it doesn't
get overwritten.

That'd be great.  I'm still planning to rewrite the basic installation
instructions to have a more FTP-based install focus instead of a unix 
tar-command focus.  It'd be nice if the admin didn't have to worry too
much about the target OS for doing just a basic install.
