pam_cracklib settings

I'm trying to setup the pam_cracklib module in system-auth to do the following:

Allow 3 of the 4 items in a password - digit, Upper case letter, lower case letter, punctuation

AS far I can determine, RedHat Enterprise will allow me to set 3 or 4 requirements (with the -1 settings of dcredit, ...) but not any 3 of the 4.

Is there a way to do this or is there any other pam modules available with more flexibility?
