It's a good bet that the prompt is stored in a file somewhere, and it's
another good bet that that file is somewhere in /etc. So figure it out for
yourself: take a recognizable chunk of that login prompt text, and find
where it lives by
grep -r "$TEXT" /etc
where $TEXT is the text you want.
As it happens, I'd been wondering this same thing. Your question made me go
and find the answer. So now I know, but I'm not telling :)
P.S. grep -r is the greatest thing since sliced bread.
