I've set-up Apache to authenticate using htaccess and MySQL. That part
works great. I'm trying to figure out how to get access (cgi? php?
server config?) to the user_name provided in the login pop-up box to
personalize the pages seen by that user. After authentication, are
there accessible environment variables? Any ideas?

For CGI, the username should be in the REMOTE_USER environment
variable. From the CGI/1.1 specification:
If the request required authentication using the "Basic" mechanism
(i.e., the AUTH_TYPE metavariable is set to "Basic"), then the value
of the REMOTE_USER metavariable is set to the user-ID supplied. In
all other cases the value of this metavariable is undefined.
REMOTE_USER = *OCTET
This variable is specific to requests made via the HTTP protocol.
Servers SHOULD provide this metavariable to scripts.
