You can try this:

Set d3drs_specularenable to false.
In texture stages, do modulate, texture, specular.

This is supposed to be fine, though, apparently, some cards don't interpolate specular when specularenable is false. The trouble is that specularenable controls multiple things.

1. Generating specular values per vertex
2. Enabling interpolating specular across the polygon
3. Performing a specular add after the texture stages

If you're using a vertex shader (you didn't say), and your specular is greyscale or white, you could output specular as diffuse.a, and use alphareplicate to get it into color channels, or just use the alpha to blend in the gloss map.
