It is not assumed as an access-reject, it is taken as a no-response, 
which is not desirable, but the outcome is the same - The user will be 
denied access.

Yes the file name is rlm_exec.c

What I did was download the source rpm, install it, make the changes in 
the /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/ directory, change the version in the spec 
file, and build an rpm. This way you can manage your installation much
