I appreciate feedback and comments:
Didn't test it on many Solaris system. Just on one x86 Solaris 10 box. At this machine the pam service 'login' resulted in a subsystem error. But 'rlogin' worked.
Don't know if this is a local or generic problem of Solaris.
You can test different pam services with the supplied utility:
$ ./pam rlogin
Thus, if you have the same problem you have to change the service name
