[Bug 1019866] is not supporting a keywords like LOCAL (man access.conf)

"LOCAL" works as designed. The manual page is not very easy to understand as it
refers to internals of the pam_access module, but what it boils down to is that
if you have a network connection (and a connection through the loopback device
counts as such), this is not "LOCAL":
"LOCAL keyword matches if and only if the PAM_RHOST is not set and <origin>
field is thus set from PAM_TTY or PAM_SERVICE".

As to "localhost" (or any other hostname) not being resolved: this is, indeed,
not handled, I'm working on that.
