Cracklib http://linux.die.net/man/8/pam_cracklib would be the normal way to achieve this, but you wouldn't be able to track historic passwords with this simple approach, only the current old one. Old passwords are not stored anywhere normally, and a solution like you want would really end up using ldap or something which can have vastly more detailed complexity.
