Yes, using SpamAssassin rules like those on the page you link to.  Have
you tried them and is there a problem?

After adding the rules, you may want to test the syntax is correct and
that the RBL is being checked with
   spamassassin --lint
   spamassassin -D < testemail.eml
before reloading your amavis configuration.

Given it's a new and untested RBL, you may want to add the -lastexternal
suffix, and try at a lower score at first.

I would suggest asking any other SA-related questions on the
spamassassin-users list.
