`yum provides /usr/libexec/polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1`
determined that the binary package is
"polkit-gnome-0.96-3.el6.x86_64".
More info is here. the binary package and the source package are both
"polkit-gnome":
http://pkgs.org/centos-6/centos-x86_64/polkit-gnome-0.96-3.el6.x86_64.rpm.html
For some reason the package is not on http://git.centos.org. Maybe it
does not exist in CentOS 7. Either way, the source rpm is here, dated
2010-08-17:
ftp://ftp.redhat.com/redhat/linux/enterprise/6Server/en/os/SRPMS/polkit-gnome-0.96-3.el6.src.rpm

Whether I login locally or over x2go, running `ps -ef` does not list
any commands prefixed with ck-launch-session.

However, `ck-list-sessions` lists the local session, but not the X2Go session.

Also, note:
$ cat /usr/share/xsessions/gnome.desktop  | grep Exec
Exec=gnome-session
TryExec=gnome-session

It appears that the ConsoleKit integration is located in these 3 scripts:
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc-common
/etc/X11/xinit/Xsession
