allowing simpler passwords

How do I disable the password-checking feature of passwd?  I'm willing
to accept moderately complex passwords that passwd wants to throw
out.  `man passwd` gives me nothing, and I'm not certain where else to
look-- is this the doings of PAM?

It is particularly annoying because it reminds me of the Windows design
philosophy:  "I know better than you do what you're trying to do."

Thanks in advance for your help.
