Well, you propably want to understand the advantage of open source
software first. You can (depending on the license) change the code
according to your needs...

Read: http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Software-Building-HOWTO.html

If you have questions, please tell exactly, where you have a problem.

$ wget http://tinylogin.busybox.net/downloads/tinylogin-1.4.tar.bz2
$ tar xvf tinylogin-1.4.tar.bz2
$ cd tinylogin-1.4
$ make

works like a charm.

A quick look into login.c says:
// login defines
#define TIMEOUT       60
#define FAIL_DELAY    3
... which looks quite promising!
Ask the busybox guys for details since this is off-topic here.
