There's one place in NetworkManager
(system-settings/src/nm-polkit-helpers.c) and one place in
NetworkManager-gnome (src/connection-editor/nm-connection-list.c)
where you can patch it out. But that would mean any user would be able
to change system network configuration and it's probably not a good

It would probably be a better bet to convince slackware to include
policy kit as more and more programs are starting to use it.
