Yes, but there is also a bug there:

Bug:1645903
CREATE/UPGRADE CATALOG TO 8.1.7 (OR LOWER VERSIONS) IN 9I DATABASE FAILS

Problem: Create/Upgrade catalog to 8.1.7 or lower version in 9i database, fails with
              PLS-593 default value of parameter "AVAILABLE" in body must  match that of spec

Workaround:
Set the following event in 9i database as
   SQL> alter system set events '10932 trace name context level 32768';
    Then invoke 8.1.7 RMAN executable - connect to 9i catalog database
   RMAN> create catalog;
   Above event will make PLSQL to ignore the errors
