Is it possible to do this under Solaris

Not sure why you want to do this, but comment out the line PASSREQ=YES in
/etc/default/login.  You may have to reboot.

I have set up accounts without passwords by changing the shadow file to
read:

account::6650:9999:9999::::

I did not disable PASSREQ=YES in /etc/default/login for this to work.

Well, one reason I want to allow this is to allow for Telnetable
applications like gopher, web or bbs.
