they already are.  tcpserver doesn't launch prog until it finishes
setting up the environment, doing ident/hostname lookups, etc.  When it
runs prog, tcprules have already been processed.

put RBLSMTPD="" in an entry that matches their IP address in your
tcprules file.

http://cr.yp.to/ucspi-tcp/rblsmtpd.html explains that seeing RBLSMTPD
set, and empty, will cause it to ignore that particular address, and
continue as normal.
