Well, I've since managed to get it working by using the following
nntpcache.access line

*          *        read,auth=user/pass;pipe * /etc/nntpok

which lets /any/ user on the system log in - a less than desirable
situation (/etc/nntpok just contains one line - 'klubnews' - the system
user I want to use for remote reading)

I've never really had any truck with PAM.. I generally try to use MySQL
auth whenever possible... makes it a lot easier to manage :) 
 
What I'm saying is - I have no idea how to use PAM.

Ideally all I want is a single user/pass combination that can then get
news access from anywhere on the Net...
