You didn't read the login.conf manpage:
The minpasswordlen and minpasswordcase facilities for enforcing restric-
tions on password quality, which used to be supported by login.conf, have
been superseded by the pam_passwdqc(8) PAM module.
Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
and never get to the software part.
