Wildcards don't seem to be available in robots.txt and MoinMoin has the
page name before action in the URI. Only chance is, if you can get
complete list of pages, to generate the robots.txt like (shellish code):

echo "User-Agent: *"
for $page in $all_pages do
    echo "Disallow: /moin.cgi/$page?"

That will allow robots to view the pages, but nothing else.
