well, the Last login line is built into login as far as I can tell...
The /etc/issue and /etc/issue.net get printed before the
authentication, and then after that /bin/login runs. When the user is
authenticated, it prints the last login time and the /etc/motd.
from the login(1) man page:
If the file .hushlogin exists, then a "quiet" login is
performed (this disables the checking of mail and the printing of the
last login time and message of the day). Otherwise, if
/var/log/lastlog exists, the last login time is printed (and the
current login is recorded).
