Just put everything to the req parameter of you layer.

- type: cache_wms
    url: http://localhost:8080/service?
    layers: roads
    transparent: 'true'
    bgcolor: 0x0000ff

> I can successfully generate good looking tiles using the generate_tiles.py script that installs with Mapnik but it appears to be using the default Agg renderer to render the tiles. The water is blue but I can't find where they are actually setting that color. Tile seeding is very important to my group so any help on this would be great!

Im don't know if OGCServer supports bgcolor, but IIRC you can set the 'water' color in the root tag of your Mapnik XML, e.g. <Map bgcolor='...'>.
