Solaris 9 passwords: Requiring at least one lowercase character

I know that this capability isn't built-in to Solaris 9, but I've been reading about PAM capabilities and it seems possible to do this with PAM configuration on Solaris 10. So the question is, is it possible to configure PAM on Solaris 9 to require at least one lowercase character for new passwords?

While I've never used Solaris for real ... can't you use cracklib?
