pmwiki will use the directory that index.php is in to look for the
various wiki-specific directories: local, wiki.d, uploads, cookbook,
pub ( maybe others, this is off the top of my head ). So you should have
a separate DocumentRoot for each subdomain, with it's own index.php file
and the above wiki directories.

Not at all. I use it with different URLs and a single installation of
pmwiki just fine as it is. No modifications necessary at all.
